Do you intend to vote in person? Look up your polling place, but note that polling place locations and voting hours are changing in many jurisdictions. Wherever you’re voting, stay up-to-date by signing up for TurboVote.
People voting in Brunswick have 3 ways to vote:
- Absentee by mail (preferred by Town Clerk to mitigate health risk & Election Day lines) – request your ballot with TurboVote. You can return your ballot via USPS (postage is pre-paid), or you can drop it yourself 24-7 at the secure ballot dropbox outside Town Hall. This is an 8 minute walk from campus (see map and photo of dropbox).
- Early in person beginning around October 5, at Town Hall (hours here).
- On Election Day (Tue 11/3) at Brunswick Junior High School, a 15-minute walk from campus (map). If the campus alert level is Yellow or Orange, Bowdoin Votes WILL be operating drop-in shuttles from Moulton Circle to the polling place every 15 minutes from 7am-8pm.
Students who live on campus should bring their OneCard as proof of identity. If you live off-campus, you’ll need to bring proof of address (e.g. copy of lease or something else from this list) or you will need to complete a Sworn Affidavit of Residency in person at the Town Clerk’s office, located in Town Hall next to Hannaford. Do this BEFORE election day (or else risk a long wait before you vote).
