Voters desiring to vote by absentee ballot need to submit a signed request form to obtain a ballot. Voters may request an absentee ballot from the Superintendent of Schools office, 41 Lebanon St, Suite 2, Hanover (603-643-6050) kateoconnor@sau70.org, or from the Town Clerk's office.

If you are requesting a ballot for another person, you may pick up or request a form, take the form to the absentee voter, obtain that person's signature, and return the request form to the Superintendent/Town Clerk's office. The absentee ballot will then be mailed to the absentee voter.
