PUBLIC HEALTH CONSIDERATIONS AND ABSENTEE VOTING
A person can register and vote by absentee if, based on their own health circumstances, medical authorities advise them to avoid going out in public. This applies to:
- voters with symptoms of a communicable disease or illness;
- voters who, due to their own health circumstances, limit public exposure in their day-to-day life as a preventative measure.
These two types of voters can reasonably conclude that a “physical disability” exists within the meaning of RSA 654:16 and 654:17, absentee registration and RSA 657:1, absentee voting.
