Who can obtain an absentee ballot is determined by NH State law. Any voter who will be unable to appear at the polls in person due to any of the following reasons is eligible.
- Being absent from town on election day during the polling hours
- Unable to vote in person due to employment during polling hours, physical disability or religious belief
Absentee ballots are available at the Town Clerk’s office, during regular open office hours. They may be delivered personally up to 5:00 p.m. on the day before the election. We stay open later on this day to accept these.
Absentee ballots delivered by mail are accepted up to 5:00 p.m. on the day of the election. If you are going to vote by mail, you should be sure to allow enought time for us to receive your application, send you the ballot, and for you to complete and mail the ballot back to us so that we receive it by that deadline.
Voters must send a signed written request for an absentee ballot to the Town Clerk or may download and complete an absentee ballot request form below.
