Voting & Registering to Vote

To exercise your right to vote, New Hampshire citizens who are at least 18 years of age must demonstrate proof of residency and citizenship to register with the Town Clerk, or with the Supervisors of the Checklist on Election Day, or at the posted Supervisor’s meetings. Come in to the Town Clerk's office and fill out a NH Voter Registration Form. Please be sure to bring along your ID (i.e. driver’s license) and your birth certificate or US passport to prove citizenship. If you are a naturalized citizen, you will need to provide the name and address (city, state) of the court where you were naturalized, and the date of naturalization. 

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.
