New Hampshire

Step 1: Apply

Can I vote-by-mail in my state?


Probably. New Hampshire usually requires an excuse to vote-by-mail, but concerns about Coronavirus count as a valid excuse in New Hampshire for the November election. Follow the application steps below. Click here to register as a new voter or to check your existing registration. (It's always a good idea to double-check.) http://sos.nh.gov/HowRegVote.aspx




Where should I send my completed application?


Mail, fax or hand-deliver your completed application to your local election office. https://app.sos.nh.gov/Public/ClerkDetails.aspx




When is the application due?


Technically, there's no specific deadline when your completed application must be received. To avoid delays within the election office and the postal service, we recommend you send it immediately and no later than the middle of October. New voters must register by October 21, 2020.




I have a question that wasn't answered here.


Please call the county election office where you live. They are in charge of elections and should be able to help you. https://app.sos.nh.gov/Public/ClerkDetails.aspx





Step 2: Vote-by-Mail

When do I have to mail or drop off my completed ballot?


Technically, ballots must be received by 5pm Election Day. (November 3, 2020) To avoid delays within the election office and the postal service, we recommend you return your voted ballot as soon as it arrives and no later than the middle of October. You may also drop your ballot at your local election office. It's a good idea to call and check first. https://app.sos.nh.gov/Public/ClerkDetails.aspx




Does it require a stamp? Two?


Read the outside of the envelope to see if additional postage may be required. The US Postal service will deliver any ballot, regardless of whether or not it has the correct postage, or any at all. They will charge the local election office for any unpaid postage. https://time.com/4547550/absentee-mail-ballot-postage-stamp-postal-service-usps/




Can my ballot be dropped off at a polling site or dedicated drop box?


There are no drop boxes and you cannot drop your ballot at a polling site. But you may hand-deliver your ballot to your local election office. https://app.sos.nh.gov/Public/ClerkDetails.aspx




Is there any way to check if my ballot was received?
