AUGUSTA — Maine election officials say the last day for requesting absentee ballots for next week’s election has arrived.

The deadline to request a ballot is the close of business Thursday.

After this deadline, an absentee ballot may be requested only if the voter completes a special circumstances application and indicates one of four allowable reasons to request an absentee ballot after this deadline.

The online absentee ballot request service is available online.
