The 2020 General Election on November 3 is shaping up to be one of the most contentious and expensive elections in U.S. history—not only on a national scale but locally as well. Specifically, Maine's U.S. Senate race has garnered national attention due to the role Susan Collins' seat plays in potentially flipping the Senate majority. 

On top of the big races, the 2020 election is posing unique challenges amid the coronavirus pandemic, prompting millions of voters across the county to opt to vote via absentee ballot as a way to vote safely. And in Maine, voters are facing another new frontier in the election with ranked-choice voting.

All of these factors lead to a sometimes overwhelming abundance of information (and misinformation). Here you'll find candidate profiles and interviews, as well as election explainers like how to vote, what is ranked-choice-voting, and more.
