In addition to all the other types of things you have to do before, during, and after a move, updating your address with Maine's Secretary of State is important to make certain documents like your license and registration show the updated information. Maine law requires notification of address change within 30 days of moving.
You can notify the Secretary of State of your address change through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Maine residents cannot currently update their address information online or via mail. A request must be made in person at a local BMC office. Proof of your new Maine residential address must be provided like a utility bill, mortgage or lease agreement, or other acceptable documentation.
