-A A +A

The Supervisors of the Checklist administer voter registration. They issue guidelines for the taking of evidence of qualifications presented by applicants. The Supervisors have special hours determined by State Law to accept voter registrations, these hours are posted at Town Hall and are printed in the local newspapers, they are generally held just before elections and before the beginning of a filing period. The Town Clerk's office will also accept applications during regular business hours. The Supervisors will approve applications when they meet. Voter registration closes 10 days before an election. New Hampshire also has same day voter registration. You may not register to vote at school district and town meetings. You may register to vote at your polling place on Election Day and vote. You are required to show proof of age, domicile and citizenship. Acceptable forms of proof of age include a driver's license, passport or birth certificate. A driver's license, utility bill or other mailed correspondence is acceptable for proof of domicile. Naturalization papers are proof of citizenship if you were not born in the United States. Domicile and citizenship affidavits are available if you cannot provide necessary documentation. At the time of your registration you will be assigned to a polling place in your area. When you register to vote you are registered for all elections and town and school meetings.
