  • J. Golden Wins Nation's First Ranked-Choice Voting Runoff For A Congressional Seat

    Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap, Maine’s top election official, today released the election results from the Congressional District 2 race in the Nov. 6, 2018 General Election.

    Jared F. Golden is declared the winner of the ranked-choice voting count for Representative to U.S. Congress in Congressional District 2, with 139,231 votes to Bruce Poliquin’s 136,326 votes in the final round.

    The tabulation took place today at noon at the centralized tabulation site in the Elkins Building in Augusta after five and a half days of processing ballots. The results will be posted as an Excel file on the Election Results page, and marked as “unofficial.” As always, official results for all races will be available and posted 20 days after the election when the final tabulation is submitted to the Governor.
