The state sent mail-in ballot applications to all registered voters by Saturday, July 23. You should have received the application in your mailbox. In order to get a vote by mail ballot, you need to complete an application and send it in by August 29. You can also download it and print it from the state’s website here and send it to your local clerk.
The process is simple. It starts with completing and submitting an application for a mail-in ballot.
- Print the application, fill it out and sign it.
- Email, fax, mail, or drop-off your application to your local election office. Your application must be received by your local election office before the deadline on Monday, August 29th at 5 PM. You can find emails, addresses, and operating hours of your local election office here.
- When your mail-in ballot arrives, VOTE! If your ballot is mailed or dropped-off at your local polling place by 8 PM on Election Day, your vote will be counted.
You’ll want to submit it as early as possible to ensure that it arrives and is counted since your primary ballot needs to be returned by 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 6 (an Election Day postmark does not count).
Towns in the 3rd Hampshire have collection boxes (or drop boxes) for your completed ballot. Their locations are:
- AMHERST: 4 Boltwood Avenue (Main St. side of Town Hall)
- GRANBY: 215 B West State Street
- PELHAM: 351 Amherst Road (Town Offices/Rhodes Building)
After mailing or dropping off your mail-in ballot, you can track your ballot here.
