Voter Registration in New Hampshire
In a state where the motto is "Live Free or Die" and the traditional town meeting is still held each year, you can expect the voter registration process to be basic. Voting eligibility is simple; you must be 18 years old and a resident of New Hampshire.
In order to register you must go to the town office where you are a resident. In most rural towns the town clerk will know you by face and positive ID isn't necessary; however, in a few of the larger NH cities you will have to prove your residency before registering to vote:
- Valid NH vehicle registration.
- NH driver's license.
- U.S. passport.
- Utility bill with recent postmark addressed to you.
The Supervisors of the Checklist will add you to the voting register at no cost to you. This register is maintained by the town and used at every voting session: school district votes, town meetings, presidential elections, zoning rules, and budgets.
Keep in mind that when you go to vote on voting day you are NOW required to provide photo identification.Other Topics in This Section
