City of Ellsworth

On November 3, 2020 the City of Ellsworth will be closed for all routine administrative duties. This includes Code Enforcement, Planning, and Assessing Department, Car Registrations, Tax payments/inquiries, purchasing trash stickers, IFW licenses, Shellfish Licenses, Vital Records, business licenses and similar tasks. We appreciate your patience as November 3rd will be dedicated to the Election process and complying with the guidelines associated with COVID-19. City Staff will be assisting the City Clerk’s Department with this process.

Please note voters assigned to Ward One and Ward Four located in City Hall will be asked to enter City Hall from the Main Street (1 City Hall Plaza parking lot) side of the building on Election Day only. Voters will then be allowed into the building as there is allowable space while enforcing the proper social distancing. All voters will exit the building from the Church Street side of City Hall. If there are extenuating circumstances voters may be allowed to enter through the Church Street entrance. We are encouraging all voters to wear a mask while in the building for situations when social distancing may not be able to be achieved. We are also encouraging only the voter to come into City Hall during this Election to allow as many voters into the building at one time.

Thank you for your patience and understanding regarding this process as it relates to the new COVID-19 guidelines.
