REGISTER TO VOTE

YOU CAN REGISTER AT THE POLLS

Traditionally, most voters in NH register in person. You can register before the election at your city or town clerk’s office during their regular business hours, at a Supervisor of the Checklist meeting, or at the polls on election day. 

REGISTER ABSENTEE BY MAIL

You can complete the registration process by mail, but currently, you will need copies or digital photos of proof of identity (ID) and domicile (address), and a witness.
