How We Vote

2016-02-09 17:23:20.000 – Ryan Knapp, Weather Observer/Staff Meteorologist


Today marks New Hampshire’s presidential primary. Some people have wondered how the summit staff participates. The summit of Mount Washington is located in Sargent’s Purchase. While the summit staff works and lives here every other week over the course of the year, we are not eligible to claim it as our full-time residency. Therefore, where we live in our off weeks would be where we are registered to vote. For those of us living in New Hampshire, if an election date lands during our off time, we just head to our local voting location and participate like the rest of state’s residents. For those of us scheduled to work during an election date, we must fill out and submit an absentee ballot. Since the summit does not have mail service during the winter, we must ensure that we submit our absentee ballots no later than the week prior.
