Absentee Ballots available for Special Election on February 21, 2023

The Rochester City Clerk’s Office is pleased to announce that absentee ballots for the upcoming Special Election are available in City Hall.

The Special Election is for Strafford County District 8 House seat candidates Chuck Grassie and David Walker. Initially, Walker defeated Grassie by 1 vote in the NH State General Election. However, a recount on November 16th determined the vote was tied 970-970.

Any registered voter who will be out of town on Election Day, or who cannot make it to the polls because of a disability, religious observance, due to employment obligations (for the purpose of an absentee ballot request, the term “employment” shall include the care of children and infirm adults, with or without compensation), may request an Absentee Ballot from the City Clerk’s Office in person, or through the mail.
