Requesting a Voting List


Maine law governs the use and distribution of information from the Central Voter Registration (CVR) system.  The form below must be used for all requests for information contained in the CVR system.  CVR material can not be used for solicitations of any kind that are not directly related to the activities of a political party, so-called "get out the vote" efforts, or activities directly related to a campaign.
