BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- In nine days people will be going to the polls to cast their vote for president, U.S. Senate, same sex marriage, and other items on the state and local ballot. Starting next week people in Bangor will have the option to vote early.
Bangor city clerk Lisa Goodwin said people can vote in the small room at the civic center. Early voting begins Monday morning at eight, and lasts until Thursday. Goodwin said the deadline to request for an absentee ballot is Thursday night at seven.
To request an absentee ballot people can call or go to Bangor city hall or they can apply online. The only difference in early voting this year is getting in and out of the civic center.
"The traffic flow is gonna be changed a little bit. Everyone has to come in on Buck Street because Dutton Street is still closed. So they're going to enter the civic center in the entrance that goes behind the grand stand and then they will be directed out of the civic center right beside the entrance by the civic center," Goodwin said.
Absentee votes are not counted until the polls close on Election Day.
