Nancy Hammond

ALFRED — Nancy Hammond of Lyman will be York County’s next Register of Deeds, handily besting her opponent, Michael Provencher of Waterboro in Tuesday’s election for the open seat.

Hammond, a Democrat, received 53,359 votes , while Republican Provencher received 39,401 votes in unofficial totals.

She will begin her four-year term Jan. 1.

Hammond, 54, earned a bachelor’s degree in paralegal studies from Rivier College in Nashua, New Hampshire, and graduated from Massabesic High School.

Married, she is the mother of two sons and is employed by Atlantic Coast Title Company, LLC where she has worked for more than 34 years.

She  said after working with registries of deeds across Maine for the past 30-plus  years she understands the responsibilities of the office and the work performed there.

“A person’s real estate is likely their most valuable asset and the real estate records need to be maintained without errors and (be) readily available,” she said. “I have a good working relationship with the current registry staff, as well as many of the professionals that access the records.”
