Bangor is a great city to be a citizen of, especially when it comes time to vote. Once again, they have In Person Absentee Voting set up at the Civic Center. Starting today, October 27,  until Saturday, Nov. 1, any resident of Bangor can vote between the hours of 8am and 6pm at the Civic Center. Election day voting will be held in the local polling places, and if you’re not sure where to vote on election day, you can find out at the city’s website. Maine is especially wonderful in that you can register on election day, so if you are a new resident, bring some ID to your polling place to register and vote at the same time. Maine has always had high voter turnout, and Bangor has often had the highest in the state — our last presidential election, 89% of registered voters showed up! This year is expected to be even higher, so early voting (technically, in person absentee, as your votes aren’t seen til election day) is a great time saver for busy families. Plus, going at a slower (we hope) time allows you to take your children to see the democratic process in action, and, free sticker! All around, a great setup.

The City of Bangor is once again offering early voting for all voters registered in Bangor. Voting takes place at the Civic Center (regardless of ward) from 8am-6pm, now until election day, including Saturday: 8am-noon.  You can register at the polls if you haven’t already; bring ID and something showing your local address, utility bill or similar, to register.  It’s not a major election year, but voting is always important!

Bangor voters can beat election day crowds and vote early at City Hall, or the Civic Center (for district 15). Voting early is a great way to beat the crowds and parking issues that you might face on election night. The Civic Center is open M-F, 8am-7pm until the end of election day.

The Brewer Post Office has a drive-thru window, which can be incredibly handy when you have a small package to mail, and a small package asleep in the back of the car! It’s located at 22 Parkway South, easily accessible from Bangor via I-395, or from Wilson Street. The Brewer Post Office also has ample parking for when you need to go inside, and don’t want to brave traffic and crosswalks in downtown Bangor. The Post Office is open 8am-6pm M-F, and 8-12pm on Saturday. The drive-thru drawer is the standard size you find at banks, but many packages (especially soft ones) fit in the drawer easily.
