PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The deadline has now passed to request an absentee ballot in Maine, unless extenuating circumstances are shown.

All told nearly 480,000 Mainers had voted by absentee ballot or in person as of Friday.

Friday was also the last day to cast an early ballot in person.

Ballots can still be returned to towns through 8 p.m. on Election Day and registered voters may vote in-person on Nov. 3 at their polling site.
