The NH Secretary of State’s office says absentee ballots for the 2020 elections have been sent to every city and town across NH. All city and town clerks’ offices now have these ballots in hand and are able to send absentee ballots to NH voters who request them.
In light of COVID-19, NH voters who are ill due to COVID-19, are caring for someone with COVID-19 or symptoms, or who are concerned that voting in person will expose themselves or others to COVID-19, are able to vote by absentee ballot. Absentee ballots can be requested through your local city or town clerk’s office. The Secretary of State’s office encourages anyone wishing to vote by absentee to make that request at their earliest opportunity.
As we approach the 2020 elections, it is critically important to get accurate answers to your elections-related questions. Granite Staters should remember that their local and state election officials are their trusted sources of election information.
