Absentee Voter Registration


If you meet the state's requirements and qualifications and are unable to register in person because of physical disability, religious beliefs, military service, or because of temporary absence, you may register by mail, when an Election is approaching.   Contact townclerk@windhamnh.gov to request an absentee voter registration packet to be mailed to you.  This packet includes an affidavit, voter registration form, and other important documents that you must read and complete in its entirety.  The absentee voter registration affidavit must be witnessed by another individual, and the absentee ballot request must be completed in full and mailed back to the office, along with any supporting documents and completed ballot (if applicable).
