Vote early — if you wish

Voting is an exercise in Democracy.  The fate of our Republic depends on it.

I love the sense of community at my local polling place on Election Day, so I will vote in person as I always do.  But if you have a hard time getting out, or will be out of town on November 4th, you may now go to your town office and vote, or you can request online to have a ballot mailed to you.  Link here:  http://www.maine.gov/cgi-bin/online/AbsenteeBallot/index.pl

Unclaimed property

The Maine Treasurer’s office holds more than $200 million in unclaimed property (financial property such as uncashed checks and forgotten bank accounts–not real estate or automobiles).  Some of this money may belong to you or someone you know and I want to help you get it back.  In your free time, take a few moments to search your name at www.maine.gov/upsearch and, if you find your name, file a claim.  Encourage your friends and relatives to do the same.  Check back often as they add new properties regularly. 

You’re welcome!
