Voter Registration. If you are a resident of the Town of Sandwich, 18 years of age, and are a United States citizen, you may register to vote in Sandwich through the Town Clerk's office or with the Supervisors of the Voter Checklist at their posted sessions. Please bring photo ID or your NH driver’s license.  In addition, in New Hampshire you may register to vote at the polling place on election day.


Absentee Ballots.  If you are a registered voter unable to appear at the polls on the day of election, you may apply for an absentee ballot at the Town Clerk’s Office or download an application for an absentee ballot and either hand-deliver, mail or fax it to the Town Clerk. There are specific Absentee Ballot Requests for each election: Local Town Elections, State and Federal Elections and FPCA (Federal Post Card Application: For Absent Uniformed Service Members, their families, and Citizens residing outside the U.S) please See link below to download these forms.  If you have any questions, please contact the Town Clerk's Office at 603-284-7113.


Remember to Bring Photo ID to the Polls. New Hampshire statutes require a voter to present photo ID to receive a ballot.  A voter who does not present an approved photo ID will be permitted to vote, however, only after executing a “challenged voter affidavit” or being identified by certain election officials.  If a voter does not present a photo ID and is unrecognized by election officials; the Moderator, as required under RSA 659:13, will photograph the voter and will immediately print and attach the photograph to the Challenged Voter Affidavit and allow the vote to take place.  A registered voter who does not have an approved photo ID may obtain one at no cost, for voting purposes only, by picking up a voucher at the Town Clerk’s office and presenting it to any NH Dept.of Motor Vehicle office that issues photo IDs.
