Do you have an interest in being Cumberland County’s Registrar of Probate? The Cumberland County Democratic Committee needs to recommend one or more candidates to our Governor, for the Registrar of Probate position, to finish out the current term of office.

The Probate Court assists in the legal and social welfare needs of a great many of the families in Cumberland County, and processes approximately 25% of the total probate filings within the State of Maine.  The Probate Court determines the legitimacy of Last Wills and Testaments, the distribution of estates; and processes name changes, minor and adult adoptions, minor and adult guardianships, and minor and adult conservatorships.

The Probate Judge and Register of Probate are officials of the court, elected to serve a four-year term.  The Probate Judge performs the judicial business of the court and the Register of Probate is responsible for the administrative work of the registry.  The Register has quasi-judicial powers and is authorized to conduct Informal Probate proceedings. The Registrar works out of the County Courthouse, at 142 Federal St. in Portland, ME 04101.

If you are interested, would like to learn more, or have questions, please reach out to our Committee at cumberlandcountydems@gmail.com.

A Message From Senate President, Troy Jackson:

Election Day is just two days away and with so much at stake, we need to make sure every single Mainer has an opportunity to cast their ballot this year.

I always remind folks to make a plan to vote. Make sure you figure out ahead of time where your polling location is and what time you plan on dropping by. And encourage your friends and family to do the same.

Where’s my polling place? With redistricting, some polling locations have changed this year. Be sure to double check so you know where to go on Election Day. Find your polling location at: www.voteinmaine.com/lookup

When should I vote? Polls close on Election Day at 8pm, so plan to arrive before then. So long as you’re at your polling place by 8pm, even if you’re waiting in line, you can still vote! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. It’s always good to plan ahead just the same. Will you be voting before work? After you pick up the kids from school? On your lunch break? Make a plan and stick to it!

If you have any questions about voting this year, visit www.voteinmaine.com, give us a call at our voter hotline (833-336-8683), or email us at voting@mainedems.org.

Make your voice heard this year!

Troy
