This year all eligible voters in New Hampshire can register to vote by mail, but voters should make their requests for absentee ballots and absentee voter registrations early, to help the state cope with the anticipated surge in remote voting this year.
“Voters can really, really help if they act early,” said Deputy Secretary of State David Scanlan. “Get registered well before the election.”
There are no on-going metrics to monitor voter registration in New Hampshire at this point in the election cycle. Scanlan said he wouldn’t expect to have data on how the pandemic is overall impacting voter registration until the fall. There has been a noticeable increase in people requesting to vote by mail, he said.
