Absentee Ballot Request Forms are not yet available for the 2024 Presidential Primary. They should become available shortly after the date for the Presidential Primary is announced. Please continue to check this site periodically through the fall.
Once the Absentee Ballot Request Forms are available, they can be found on our website under Voting Information, or the voter may email the Town Clerk's Office or call at 603-640-3200 to have the form provided to them. From recent correspondence from the Office of the NH Secretary of State, we have learned the request form must be signed in ink on paper.
The completed form may be returned as follows:
There is an electronic process for voters who certify they have a print disability and, because of this disability, are unable to sign the application for absentee ballot.
Voters living overseas can apply for an absentee ballot using a Federal Postcard Application, or FPCA at any time throughout the year. These can be filled out, signed in ink on paper and emailed to email@example.com. Voters will receive their ballots by email, with instructions for filling out and mailing by post back to Hanover Town Hall.
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 or family care obligations
Please note: "no excuse" absentee voting for convenience is not currently an option in New Hampshire.
