If you plan to vote in person at the designated polling place, be aware of the voter identification requirements that are mandated by NH state law.
By Absentee Ballot
Per NH state law, residents are eligible to vote by absentee ballot if you meet either of the following criteria:
- Will be absent from the town during polling hours on election day
- Have an illness, disability, or religious reason that prevents you from traveling to the polls
Absentee ballots are available from the Town Clerk’s office approximately 30 days before an election. You can request the absentee ballot application from the Town Clerk’s office or download it from the web site. (To download the application for town elections, click here. For state and federal elections, the application will be published with the election information. You may also obtain the application from the Town Clerk’s office.) You may alternately submit a request in writing that includes your name, voting address, mailing address, and signature. An absentee ballot application may be transmitted by fax to the Town Clerk’s office.
Special considerations for absentee ballots:
- Before statewide elections, the Secretary of State’s office (http://sos.nh.gov/) should have applications posted online.
- Voters living outside the United States may file a UOCAVA absentee ballot application.
