How do I obtain an absentee ballot?

An Official Absentee Ballot Request form is available on the Town's website *here* or the voter may email or call the Town Clerk's Office to have the form provided to them. This request form must be physically signed but can be returned via email ( ; via fax 603-643-1720; or via post (PO Box 483 Hanover NH 03755). In the State of New Hampshire, voting by absentee ballot is allowed only for the following reasons:
  • Physical disability or impairment
  • Religious observance
  • Absence from Town or City of residence on the day of election
  • Employment obligations

Please note! Early voting for convenience is not currently an option in New Hampshire.

If you are a military or overseas voter, the Federal Postcard Application is the way to request your absentee ballot. Questions? Please email the Town Clerk's Office!
