Town Meeting / Warrants (Town Elections)

The Town of Blue Hill is ultimately governed by its “legislative body”—all citizens registered to vote in Blue Hill. The legislative body acts through Town Meetings called for the purpose of voting on one or more articles in a warrant.

Annual Town Meeting

The Annual Town Meeting is held to elect municipal positions, vote on annual appropriations for municipal and school expenditures, and to act on other business relating to new or amended ordinances and other matters requiring consideration of a Town vote.

It is generally held over two days, starting with the first Friday in April. The first day, Friday, consists of referendum (secret ballot) votes for the election of officials and any other matters designated for referendum voting in the annual Warrant. The meeting is then adjourned until the next day, Saturday, at which the Town’s voters reconvene to discuss, consider amendments to, and vote on the remaining warrant articles.

Register to Vote

The State of Maine allows residents to register to vote any time leading up to and including Election Day. Residents of Blue Hill may register to vote at the Town Office.

  • To register, you must be a United States citizen, at least 17 years of age, and have established a fixed principal home in Maine. 
  • To vote in a Referendum or General Election, you must be registered in the community where you reside and be at least 18 years of age. A 17-year-old may vote in a Primary Election, if that person will be 18 by the General Election.

Proof of residency and identity needs to be provided at the time of registering. One form could be a Maine driver’s license that would show a physical street location. If your license displays a PO Box, you will need to also provide another document (school registration, utility bill, etc) that lists a physical address in Blue Hill.

If you are currently registered to vote and wish to change any information pertinent to your voting record, such as your name or address, contact the Town Office to update your registration.
