Maine Public Records

The Maine State Records mission is to provide every person the right to detect, obtain, preview and examine public records, thus ensuring residents of the state of Maine are provided access in total correspondence with the Maine Freedom of Access Act:

The main goal is to enable all members of the general public the right to access Maine state public records easily, efficiently and concisely; their subsequent use is generally irrelevant in the state of Maine, with a few exceptions encompassed in the law. Every citizen and any other interested individual may request records for any purpose, without disclosing a “need to know.”

Maine State Records contains the information concerning the following subjects: Criminal Records, Court Records, Vital Records and State Background Checks, including the information in the number of over 10 million public records.

The search functionality granted in this portal enables the requested information to be presented immediately and accurately. Maine state public records have been gathered from as far back as the year 1892 and include information from 16 counties, thereby ensuring Maine abides by the commitment of the United States of America to remain a “fair and just” society for all.
