You may register to vote with your local Supervisors of the Checklist.  The Supervisors of the Checklist will be holding voter registration/change sessions in their office, Room #6 at Town Hall, on:

Tuesday, January 23, 2018 from 7 PM to 8 PM
Saturday, March 3, 2018 from 11 AM to 12 PM
Tuesday, March 20, 2018 from 7 PM to 8 PM
Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 11 AM to 12 PM

Saturday, September 1, 2018 from 11 AM – 12 PM
Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 11 AM – 12 PM

You may register to vote in person at the Town Clerk’s office at 84 Chester Street up to 10 days before any election.  The hours are:

Monday         8:00 am to 1:00 pm
Tuesday       12:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Wednesday   8:00 am to 1:00 pm
Thursday    12:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Friday            8:00 am to 1:00 pm
3rd Saturday of every month   8:00 am to 12:00 pm

You may register to vote on the day of any election, at the polling place.  Be aware this will take extra time.  The upcoming elections are:

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 from 7 AM – 7 PM:  Town Election
Saturday, May 12, 2018 at 9 AM:  Town Meeting
Tuesday, September 11, 2018 from 7 AM – 7 PM:  State Primary Election
Tuesday, November 6, 2018 from 7 AM – 7 PM:  State General Election

Each of these methods requires proof of age, citizenship, and domicile, by document or affidavit.  Please have your driver’s license with your current address on it (or proof of residency-2 bills that are mailed to your home in your name) AND either your birth certificate, passport, or naturalization papers with you to register.

You may register by mail.  

If you meet the state’s voter requirements and qualifications and are unable to register in person because of physical disability, religious beliefs, military service, or because of temporary absence, you may register by mail.  You should request an absentee voter registration affidavit and a standard voter registration form from the Town Clerk.  The absentee voter registration affidavit must be witnessed and then both the affidavit and the voter registration form are to be returned to the Town Clerk.

THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO VOTE.

You may vote in person.  Voting takes place in the Multi-Purpose Room, which is at the west end of Town Hall – 84 Chester Street – from 7 AM to 7 PM on Election Day.  State law requires that you show photo identification – driver’s license, passport, student ID are all acceptable.

You may vote by Absentee Ballot.  By New Hampshire law, only residents who will be absent from Town during the hours the polls are open on election day, and residents with illnesses or disabilities or religious reasons for being unable to travel to the polls, are eligible to vote absentee.

Absentee ballots are available from the Town Clerk approximately 30 days before an election.  You may request the absentee ballot application from the Town Clerk, or you may download the application.  An application for an absentee ballot may be transmitted by FAX to the Town Clerk’s office at (603) 887-4334.

Voters living outside the United States may file a UOCAVA absentee ballot application.

If you have questions about your voting rights, you may contact the NH Secretary of State at (603) 271-3242, or the NH Attorney General at (603) 271-3658.
