Maine Students Vote encourages young people to become democratic leaders and life-long civic champions in their communities.

Maine Students Vote is a network of student and adults that are focused on increasing election engagement and civic participation on college campuses and high schools in Maine. We support campuses and schools in developing voter education materials, organizational action planning, training and mentoring civic leaders, and coordinating get-out-the-vote efforts. We have been on the ground since 2015, and work collaboratively with other national and local youth voting organizations.

This is a nonpartisan initiative that is focused on being a trusted resource for all Maine communities.

Student Voters

Maine has an upcoming statewide primary election on June 11, 2024. If you are a U.S. citizen, reside in Maine, and will be 18 or older on or before June 11, you are eligible to vote! If you go to college in Maine, you are eligible to register and vote here in Maine, if you want. But, you must establish a voting residence there. You can establish a voting residence at your Maine campus address even if it’s a dorm or apartment.

As a student, as long as you meet the Maine residency requirements, you are allowed to vote in Maine.

Need help getting started? Visit MaineStudentsVote.org/Vote for how to register to vote, how to establish residency on your Maine campus, and more.
