It’s Election Day for some Bangor-area residents today.
Special House election
There’s a special election to fill a Maine House vacancy representing parts of Bangor and Orono. If you live in House District 124, you’ll decide between Democrat Joe Perry and Republican Thomas White. The election is to fill the vacancy left by Aaron Frey, who became Maine’s attorney general earlier this year.
The House district covers the easternmost neighborhoods of Bangor, including some of the tree streets, and a rural section of Orono.
Here’s what you need to know:
Orono residents are also choosing two town councilors to serve three-year terms and a school board member. They’re also voting on a number of changes to their town charter.
— Polls are open until 8 p.m. at the Orono Town Office upstairs in the council chambers.
