    Uniformed Service Members, Their Families, and Citizens Residing Outside of the United States

    The Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act is commonly referred to as UOCAVA. UOCAVA citizens are U.S. citizens who are active members of the Uniformed Services, the Merchant Marine, and the commissioned corps of the Public Health Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, their eligible family members and U.S. citizens residing outside the United States. This Act provides the legal basis for these citizens’ absentee voting requirements for federal offices. Register to vote, request an absentee ballot, and update your contact information using the Federal Post Card Application. Please visit www.fvap.gov for more information.

    One4All – Accessible Voting in NH

    One4All is an accessible voting machine developed by the State of NH that allows voters who are blind or visually impaired, or who find it difficult to complete a paper ballot to vote independently.  It consists of a tablet and auditory prompts that allow you to vote the ballot. The NH Association for the Blind has produced a video about how the system works.
