Rules of ranked-choice voting

Date: May 16, 2018

The final rules governing the tabulation of ranked-choice voting ballots are now available on the Maine Department of the Secretary of State website, along with an animated video that shows how the tabulation will work. On June 12, 2018, this method of voting will be used for the first time ever in a statewide election as voters cast their ballots in the Primary Election. 

“These are the final components of our ranked-choice voting resources webpage, which we are providing so that voters can educate themselves about this new process before going to the polls or marking their absentee ballots,” said Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap. “I also look forward to meeting with voters to discuss this information with them during my visits this month.”
