The State of Maine allows residents to register to vote anytime, including the day of the election. Southwest Harbor residents may register to vote in person at the Town Clerk's office anytime; or when changing or renewing a driver's license at the Registry of Motor Vehicles at least 25 days prior to an election.
Proof of residency and proof of identity is required, e.g. Maine driver's license showing current physical street address in Southwest Harbor
Residence for voting purposes as defined in M.R.S.A. Title 21 A sec. 112, is that place where the person has established a fixed and principal home to which the person, whenever temporarily absent, intends to return. Under this definition, residence is something a person establishes, not something a person chooses. While the definition includes the person's "intent to return" to a residence, it makes it clear that the residence must in fact exist, and the person must have established it as a fixed and principal home.
