2024 Elections Hub

As Mainers prepare to head to the polls, June 11 and November 5, The Maine Monitor is finding new ways to shed light on the election process and to inform readers about the people and issues on the ballot. We are committed to providing accurate, nuanced and nonpartisan journalism.

Rather than reporting on the latest presidential polls or campaign stops — which will get plenty of coverage in the national press — we’re planning to focus on what’s happening here in Maine. 

Both of Maine’s seats in the U.S. House of Representatives are on the ballot this year, as is one of the state’s U.S. Senate seats. All 151 state representative seats and 35 state senate seats are also on the ballot, as are the following county offices, depending on the county: judge of probate, register of probate, county treasurer, register of deeds, sheriff and county commissioner.

Given the spread of misinformation and questions about the voting process that have permeated the national conversation in recent years, we’ll devote much of our reporting efforts to explanatory journalism on the election process itself and to matters of policy related to the elections. We want to ensure Mainers can say with confidence that they understand the election process and have all the information they need to participate.

We’ll also focus our reporting on Maine’s county races, which are often overlooked, and we’ll break down statewide ballot initiatives, which are too often confusing to voters. At the heart of our work is a desire to help Mainers participate in the electoral process and make informed decisions at the polls.

As always, our nonprofit journalism is independent and nonpartisan: The Maine Monitor does not take a position on any particular political party or policy, nor does it endorse candidates. Our mission is to deliver journalism that informs Mainers about the issues impacting our state and inspires them to take action.
