Each party’s nomination for President/Vice President of the United States, party candidates who are nominated as a result of the June Primary Election and Unenrolled candidates will appear on the General Election ballot. Due to the COVID19/Coronavirus Pandemic the June Primary Election was postponed to July 14, 2020 and those results can be viewed here (PDF).
The actual election of the President/Vice President occurs through the Electoral College. The “popular vote” is used to choose Maine’s four (4) “electors” who convene at the Electoral College at the State House in December to cast their electoral votes.
