Once bills are scheduled for public hearings, you can sign up to testify live: https://www.mainelegislature.org/testimony/. At this link, you can submit written testimony and/or sign up to testify. If you sign up to testify, you will receive an email to register for the Zoom webinar. Once you register, you’ll receive another email with a Zoom link to join the hearing. You must sign up at least 30 minutes before the hearing.

When you join the hearing online, you will be a participant—able to see and hear the committee, but they will not see or hear you. When it’s your turn to testify, you will be switched to a panelist, enabling the committee members to see and hear you. If a lot of people are signed up to testify, you will probably be limited to three minutes. After completing your testimony you will be switched back to a participant. At that point, if you wish to log off, you should have the option of watching the remainder of the hearing on the committee’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/MaineStateLegislature/channels.

To testify in this manner, you will need a device equipped with a camera and microphone (laptop, tablet, webcam, cell phone, etc.) and an Internet connection.
