Tuesday, May 15, 2012 11:38 AM


Governor Paul LePage announced enhancements to the State of Maine’s award-winning website, http://www.Maine.gov. The newly revamped website takes mobile-ready design to the next level, along with a fresh look, faster speed, and a powerful new search engine.

Tablets and smartphones are changing the way people consume information and Maine.gov is ready. Whether it’s reading a press release, renewing a license, checking fall foliage conditions, or looking for agency contact information, you can get it done at your desk, on a train, or from the comfort of your own home. You can even sign up to get notified by text message or email from state agencies for the specific topics you care about, such as weather alerts, news, road construction, fishing tips, lottery numbers, and state flag display etiquette.

Governor LePage remarked, “Combining innovative design with user-friendly navigation, Maine.gov is a site for the people. It provides transparency and efficiency.”

Recent updates to the site include:

  • Responsive Design: http://www.Maine.gov downloads fast and displays beautifully on any device and screen size, so users can get things done and stay informed from anywhere.
  • New search engine: The new search feature is faster and provides better results. The search box is now more prominent and the type-ahead suggestions help users find content, services, and agencies.
  • Speed Optimization: The updated site is faster than ever, even on mobile devices.
  • Dynamic service activity: The site includes trending topics and activity statistics from the previous week for online services.
  • More mobile services: Several Maine.gov online services are now available for mobile devices. (www.maine.gov/portal/mobile/)
  • User engagement: Social media options include Twitter, Facebook, and a Flickr photo-sharing feature.

“Maine.gov is not just innovative and appealing, it is easy to use for a broad range of citizens wherever they are and on any device,” noted Maine’s Chief Information Officer, Jim Smith.

Additionally, multiple state agencies are working to improve department websites.
