BANGOR, Maine — Bangor City Clerk Lisa Goodwin is reminding Bangor voters of important upcoming Election information. The polling place for all Bangor voters is the Cross Insurance Center, located at 515 Main Street.

Important upcoming Election dates and times are as follows:

Early, in-person absentee voting is taking place Monday, October 31st – Thursday, November 3rd, at the Cross Insurance Center from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
