For the Town of Madawaska, in-person voting will take place on July 14 at Madawaska Multi-Purpose Center. This location will be open from 8 am until 8 pm.
Voters may cast an absentee ballot instead of voting in person. To minimize interaction with others during this public health pandemic (COVID-19), some voters may prefer voting by absentee ballot. Casting an absentee ballot is convenient and secure.
Absentee ballots may be requested in writing, by phone, online, or in person up to and including the day of the election, without specifying a reason. However, if you are asking to receive your ballot by mail, please request it early enough to allow for postal mail delivery time – both to receive it and return it (2-5 days each way).
- You can request an absentee ballot by calling your Municipal Clerk’s office at 728-6351.
- You can also print off a form by clicking here.
- You can request an absentee ballot online or by mail from the Secretary of State's website: https://www1.maine.gov/cgi-bin/online/AbsenteeBallot/online-form.pl
- Absentee ballot requests are being accepted right now. Printed ballots will be available by mid-June, and we will issue your ballot as soon as possible after that date.
- Ballots must be returned to the municipal clerk no later than 8:00 pm on Election Day.

Welcome to the beautiful "Heart of the St. John Valley." The Greater Madawaska area is well known for its friendly people and great hospitality. Serving as the center of Acadian culture in Maine, we have a lot to offer our guests. Visit our neighbor across the border, Edmundston, New Brunswick, Canada.
Visit the historic site along the breathtaking St. John River where our ancestors first stepped foot in northern Maine. The spot is marked with a huge cross, erected at the location where Acadians landed after fleeing from their Nova Scotia homeland in 1785 to avoid being deported by the British. Experience the history and proud heritage of the people immortalized in the famous Henry Wadsworth Longfellow poem " Evangeline" when you tour the Tante Blanche Museum, or attend any of the spectacular Acadian Festivals in late June. Madawaska is home to many cultural and historical significant sites, all of which tell the story of the French-Acadian settlers. Come witness it for yourself.
