AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine voters have a few more days to request an absentee ballot for next month's election.

The deadline for absentee ballot requests is Thursday. That also includes requests to vote in the presence of the municipal clerk.

Requests will only be accepted after the deadline if the Secretary of State's office accepts the reason for its delay.

Voters can return absentee ballots until 8 p.m. on election day, which is Nov. 5.

The statewide ballot will include five questions asking voters whether they want to support certain bond proposals. The bonds on the ballot include those for Maine's roads and bridges, armories and universities.
