When are elections scheduled?
The annual town meeting and elections are held in June. Special town meetings may be called by the Board of Selectmen during the year as needed. Historically, a special town meeting has been scheduled in October to set the mil rate. Notices of elections are posted at the Town Office. Elections are held at the Dedham Fire Station and town meetings are held at the Dedham School or the Dedham Municipal Building.
Effective April 10, 2000, Maine has "no reason" absentee voting. The law permits absentee ballots to be cast at any election by any voter who properly requests a ballot. A voter may cast his/her absentee ballot at the Town Office during regular office hours. Absentee ballots are available approximately 30 days prior to the election, and must be requested no later than the third business day before an election. Absentee ballots may be requested by the following means: Telephone, In writing (voter or immediate family member), and In person (voter or immediate family member).
