HANOVER — Hanover is postponing its Town Meeting by two weeks as it plans a drive-in floor meeting, the Upper Valley’s first.

The town’s annual business meeting, which usually takes place at Hanover High School, is now scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 7, in Dartmouth College’s Dewey Field parking lot.

The space, just north of the Geisel School of Medicine, will allow everyone to remain in their cars and practice social distancing, according to Town Manager Julia Griffin.

Volunteers will traverse the lot with microphones for floor debates and voting placards will be distributed for hand votes, she said.

Ballot voting will also take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the same day, but residents are encouraged to request an absentee ballot.
