Unity Town News
In My World
I contacted Sue at the Unity Town Office about obtaining absentee ballots for the upcoming election in November. You can call her at 948-3763 or come to the office to vote in person. She also suggested going to the Secretary of State’s website at www.maine.gov/sos and clicking on the link in the upper right corner titled "Absentee Ballot Request Service" under Online Services. We completed the online application form that is then electronically transmitted to Sue. The ballots should be in the first week of October.
