PORTLAND — An “off-year” election on Tuesday, Nov. 4, may seem anything but that, as city voters will be asked to choose a governor, a U.S. senator, the U.S. 1st District representative, two members of the state Senate, eight members of the state House of Representatives, two City Council members and three School Board members.
Also on the ballot are choices for a Cumberland County commissioner, Cumberland County district attorney, Cumberland County probate judge, four directors of Casco Bay Lines (for island residents) and seven statewide referendum questions.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Polling places are designated by the City Council and School Board districts. Sample city ballots can be found on the City Clerk’s website. A larger list of county, state and federal candidates on the ballot can be found on the state website, where voters can enter their addresses for more information.
