Brooksville Maine is a small coastal town with a laid-back community

lifestyle and diverse industries from fishing to plumbing to computer 

graphics and marketing.

We hope you will enjoy our  website!  



Hello Brooksville,

 

It's about time for Elections and Annual Town Meeting (ATM), but amid COVID-19 you may be wondering.... how is it going to look?  Well, like everything else this year it will look a bit different! 

 

With your health and well being first and foremost on our minds, a bit different, we hope will also mean manageable in the safest way possible!

 

After much discussion and research it seemed the safest option would be to have all articles voted in a written ballot form. We inquired as to what other towns are doing, checked with Maine Municipal, the School, Superintendent, the Governor's Office, and our auditors.

 

The final decision - There will NOT be an open Annual Town Meeting for Brooksville in 2021, rather a -

 

2021 Brooksville Town Elections

Written Municipal and School Referendum Vote Day

 

Your annual election of officers ballot will be exactly the same as always. 

Example:

The  change is that ATM articles which are normally voted by a raise of your hand at an open Town meeting will appear in ballot form.

 

That sounds a bit daunting....75ish municipal articles and 16ish school articles, ugh! Right? We thought so too. So articles are going to be grouped together by department.  For example reserve accounts will all appear together. Each item and the request will be listed out but you would only be voting once.

Example:

By grouping articles together it should reduce the number of both  school and municipal articles to a more manageable size ballot.

 

At this point articles are still being drafted, the example above may not look exactly as the ballot will appear, but the setup will be similar. Our hope is to have the actual sample ballots available for you to view and familiarize yourself with by the first week in February. Giving you a bit of time before you need to vote.

 

Because of these changes there are several things you need to know and remember. 

1. All articles will be in written/ referendum form.

 

2. To receive an absentee ballot -

     a. You MUST complete an Absentee Ballot (AB) Application. Applications will be available February 1 near the drop boxes at the front of the building or you may request one from the Town Clerk. 326-4518

     b. You must be a registered voter in Brooksville.

     c. Completed (AB) applications can be dropped off in the Town Drop Box. Once processed your Ballot(s) will be mailed to you.

     d. Completed Ballots must be received in the Clerk's Office on or before 8:00pm on March 1, 2021

 

3. To vote in person - 

     a. Go to the Town House on March 1, 2021

     b. Voting booths will be open from 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM

     c. As the number of people allowed in the building is strictly limited and the ballot is rather long....be prepared to wait. You should dress appropriately or consider voting by absentee ballot.

 

4. We recommend voting absentee if possible.

     

As always please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions. 

 

Be well, be safe, and kind Brooksville,

Gayle
