Maine voters will make their choice for President of the U.S. on November 8. Voters there will also pick two members of Congress to represent them in the House of Representatives. There is no governor or U.S. Senate race in the state.
Here are the candidates on the 2016 Maine ballot.
Maine and Nebraska are the only states that divide their electoral votes proportionally. In Maine, two votes automatically go to the winner of the popular vote, while the other two are based on the winner of each Congressional district. The state has a total of four electoral votes. Only four presidential candidates are on the ballot in Maine. They are:
- Hillary Clinton (D)
- Donald Trump (R)
- Gary Johnson (Libertarian)
- Jill Stein (Green Party)
U.S. House of Representatives
Maine is split into two Congressional districts. District 1 is represented by Chellie Pingree (D) and covers the southern portion of the state, including Portland and Augusta. District 2, which covers the northern half of the state, is represented by Bruce Poliquin (R).
Maine does not have a gubernatorial race or U.S. Senate race this year. However, members of both the Maine State House and Maine State Senate are up for re-election.
