The Maine House of Representatives is the lower house of the Maine Legislature. The House consists of 151 members (excluding two nonvoting members) representing an equal amount of districts across the state. Each voting member of the House represents around 8,450 citizens of the state. Because it is a part-time position, members of the Maine House of Representatives usually have outside employment as well. Members are limited to four consecutive terms of two years each, but may run again after two years.
The House meets at the Maine State House in Augusta.
