Voting & Registering to Vote

New Hampshire citizens who are at least 18 years of age must demonstrate proof of residency and register with the Town Clerk, or with the Supervisors of the Checklist on Election Day or at the posted Supervisor’s meetings, in order to exercise the right to vote. Come in to the Town Clerk's office and fill out a NH Voter Registration Form. Please be sure to bring along your ID (driver’s license or passport).

In New Hampshire, no one is permitted to register to vote after ten (10) days prior to an election. This allows the Supervisors of the Checklist time to update and print the Voter Checklist that will be used at the polls on Election Day. However, you may register to vote at the polls on Election Day. 

Not sure if you are registered to vote or what party you are registered? Check it out at the State of NH Voter Information Lookup: http://app.sos.nh.gov.
 


Important:  Please use appropriate absentee ballot request form for the election you will be voting absentee. Click the 'ABSENTEE BALLOTS' headline above for ballot request documents.
