Vote in New Hampshire



You can complete the registration process by mail. 

You will need copies or digital photos of proof of identity (ID) and domicile (address), and a witness.

  1.    Request the absentee registration forms:

Call or email  your town or city clerk’s office or the Secretary of State. You can also request your registration forms by sending your clerk your absentee ballot request form. 

  2.  ​​ Check the mail or your email: 

Your clerk or the SOS will mail the forms to you. They can also email you the forms if you can print them at home.

  3.    Collect your proof: 

You must provide proof of identity and domicile (your address). If you don’t have paper copies, you can take a picture of your ID or proof and email that to your clerk to supplement your applications

  4.   Fill out the forms:  

  • Complete the registration form.

  • Complete one of two affidavit forms:

    • The word “disability” here means an illness or condition that keeps you from appearing in person. 

    • Use the "Temporary Absence" form if you're out of town.

  • Don’t forget to sign your forms! 


  5. ​   Ask a witness to sign your affidavit!

  • Any person may serve as a witness. They just need to confirm that you are who you say you are. 

  • Some helpful tips:

    • Call a friend or a neighbor to be a witness. If you need a witness, call our hotline at 603-466-8683

    • Sign your form while your witness watches from 6 feet away or through a window.  Step back or side it toward your witness. 

    • Your witness signs it! Then they can leave it for you or they can mail all your documents for you after you sign it. 

  6. ​   Return your packet to your Clerk:

If you are unable to complete any of these steps, contact your clerk for assistance. You may request accommodation if you do not have access to a witness or the ability to provide copies of proof of identity and domicile.  


Register in person with your clerk's office.
