Registering to Vote and Voting by Absentee Ballot During the Covid 19 Pandemic

It's a scary time to vote in New Hampshire due to the presence of the coronavirus and Covid 19.  Municipalities are only now starting to grapple with what changes will be necessary to maintain social distancing, sanitized surfaces, logistics of getting people in and out of the building, and keeping poll workers safe, many of whom are over 60 years old.

Fortunately, New Hampshire's Secretary of State has made temporary accommodations for any voter with Covid 19 concerns to be able to vote with an absentee ballot rather than in person.   This accommodation is effective for any municipal, state or federal election in 2020, the two biggest being the September 8, 2020 state primary for Governor, Executive Council, Senate, and State Representative, and the November 3, 2020 general election for those positions, U.S. Senate and President of the United States. 


We have created a page called "How to Vote by Absentee Ballot in New Hampshire" which will give you both the routine rules for requesting and filling out the absentee ballot request form, as well as filling out and returning the absentee ballot itself.
