AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) – Maine registered voters can now request absentee ballots online for the Nov. 8 general election.

Voters have until three days before the election to request an absentee ballot. Forms can also be printed out and mailed or brought to municipal clerks’ offices.

Maine voters will weigh in on statewide legislative races, congressional match-ups and the presidential race.

The November ballot will also include one bond issue and five citizen’s initiative questions on legalizing marijuana, raising money for schools, imposing background checks for gun sales, raising the minimum wage and instituting ranked-choice voting.

Absentee ballots can be requested on Maine’s website: http://www.maine.gov/cgi-bin/online/AbsenteeBallot/index.pl
