Who can Register to Vote
New Hampshire residents who will be 18 years of age or older on the day of the next election, and a United States Citizen, may register with the supervisors of the checklist or the town clerk up to 10 days before any election. You may register on Election Day at the polling place. There is no minimum period of time you are required to have lived in the state before being allowed to register. You may register as soon as you move into town.
How to Register to Vote
1) Apply at the town clerk’s office. You will be required to fill out a standard voter registration form and will be required to show proof of identity, and citizenship and domicile.
2) Apply with the Supervisors of the Checklist. By law, they are required to meet 10 days prior to each election. Check the local newspaper(s) or call the clerk’s office for the date and time of such meeting.
3) Qualified individuals may also register to vote at the polling place on Election Day at all elections. You will be asked to show proof of identity, citizenship and domicile. Anyone registering to vote on Election Day without proof of identity will be required to fill out a Challenged Voter Affidavit and have their picture taken.
Request for Absentee Ballots
Absentee ballots are available from the town clerk approximately 30 days prior to an election. Request the absentee ballot application from the town clerk, or if you wish, you may submit a request in writing which should include all the information that is required on the application. Don’t forget your name, voting address, mailing address and your signature. An application for an absentee ballot may be transmitted by facsimile or email to the town clerk.

Clerks may accept completed absentee ballots submitted in person by the voter until 5:00 p.m. the day before an election or until 5:00 p.m. on Election Day if received through the mail. A marked absentee ballot may NOT be transmitted by facsimile to a town or city clerk. If a family member drops off an absentee ballot with the town clerk an Absentee Ballot Return Form must be completed by the person returning the absentee ballot.
