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 (townclerk@hanovernh.org) ; 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!
