Take Advantage of New COVID Absentee Ballot Rules
Primary Election Absentee Ballots Available NOW
Primary Election Day is Tuesday, September 8
Election Day is Tuesday, November 3
Applications and Ballots may be picked up at municipal offices
Request an application for absentee ballots HERE
New Hampshire now allows voting by absentee ballot out of a concern for COVID-19 exposure. The application form has been simplified:
One request form serves for both the September primary and the November general election.
Check the COVID-19 box as your reason.
There are many other valid reasons for absentee voting: caring for children or a dependent adult, conflicts with work schedules, or being out of town.
SPECIAL ALERT - Check that you received the correct ballot for your ward & DO NOT DELAY!
New Hampshire law requires that absentee ballots be received no later than 5pm on election day. Do not depend on the post office to convey your ballot as election day approaches. Hand deliver it to your municipal office - many have dedicated, secure drop boxes for this purpose. If your ballot is delivered the day after the election, it will not be counted. If you mail your ballot, be sure to mail at least two weeks in advance and use the link above to track it to be sure it has arrived in time.
Poll Workers Are Needed
You can help ensure a smooth and fair voting process. Contact your municipal office to sign on as a poll worker. Contact information for all NH NH municipalities is HERE. To contact the Dover City Clerk, call 516-6012. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will be provided, workers are paid minimum wage, and there are multiple jobs, some with public contact, some not. Especially this year, when a large turnout is anticipated and absentee balloting is projects to increase substantially, people are needed to keep our voting save and secure.
