Have you made a plan to vote on Nov. 3rd?
If you haven't registered to vote, there's still time, but do this in person at the town clerk's office, or in person at the polls on election day. You'll need a government-issued ID and proof of your "domicile." Call your clerk for details, or see this PDF document at the NH Secretary of State's website for permissible documents and ID requirements.
Next, decide HOW you're going to vote: Absentee before the election, or in-person on election day.
If you vote by absentee ballot, you need to request an absentee ballot by downloading an absentee ballot application. [See Open Democracy's "How to Vote by Absentee Ballot in New Hampshire" pages for details] If you are doing absentee, you must request the ballot RIGHT NOW. Time is short to get your application to the clerk, and get the ballot returned to the clerk. Please return the ballot the day you get it, to allow for time to delivery, and remember to sign the affidavit envelope on the right side for concerns with COVID. After October 23rd, we highly recommend you return your absentee ballot right to an official the town or city clerk's office. DON'T drop it in a drop box, unless told to do so by a municipal official. Putting a ballot in an unattended box could invalidate it. You can also bring your ballot in on election day until 5 p.m.
If you want to vote in person at the polls, please wear a mask, and we recommend you bring your own black ball point pen. If you forget, there will be some available for you to keep. Due to fewer polling booths because of social distancing, be prepared and dressed to stand in lines, possibly outside. Sanitize going into the polls and on the way out. A reminder that no political signs or garb are allowed in the polling place. Be patient and kind as we get through a challenging day together!
No matter how you vote, VOTE! Your vote is your voice, and you need to use it!
