For the September 8 and November 3 2020 elections in New Hampshire, anyone concerned about the spread of illness may vote absentee. Mail-in voter registration for new voters or those who have moved is also allowed for health reasons. For these elections, "physical disability" as a reason to vote or register absentee includes fears about Covid 19.
On election day, polls will be open with social distancing and other sanitation practices in place for those who want to register and vote in person. More details to come.
Voting absentee 2020 On April 10, 2020, the Secretary of State and Attorney General of NH issued the following directive regarding voting absentee in this time of heightened health issues:
"With respect to any upcoming municipal elections, we offer the following guidance as to who is eligible to vote by absentee ballot in light of the current public health crisis. As explained below, in light of the current public health state of emergency, Emergency Orders #16 and #26, and current public health guidance on social distancing and avoiding being in public in groups of 10 or more, all voters have a reasonable ground to conclude that a "physical disability" exists within the meaning of RSA 657:1. Therefore,all voters may request an absentee ballot on that basis."
