AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine residents are running out of time to change their political party in advance of the June primary.

Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap says voters have until Friday to make the change in most municipalities. The primary elections are on June 14.

Friday is the deadline because the state requires a 15-day waiting period after a change of enrollment before a voter can vote in a party’s primary or participate in its caucus or convention.

Maine recognizes three parties. They are the Democratic, Republican and Green Independent parties. Everyone else is considered “unenrolled.”
