A person must meet the following to register and vote in New Hampshire: 

  • 18 years of age or older on election day;
  • A United States citizen; and
  • Domiciled in the town or ward where the person seeks to vote. 

If you do not have identifying documentation to meet any of the above criteria,  an affidavit can be used to prove identity, age, citizenship, or domicile. Please visit

Military or Oversees Citizen Registration:
If you are a member of the military you can obtain from your commanding officer a Standard Form 76 (red and white form), Federal Post Card Application - Registration and Absentee Ballot Request. If you are an oversees citizen or if your commanding officer does not have the form you can print out the online version of the Federal Post Card Application and mail it to the City Clerk's Office.

All applications must be approved by the Board of Registrars before being added to the checklist.

Absentee Ballot applications for the upcoming elections can be printed using the link below.  You may mail, e-mail, fax, or hand deliver your completed application to the Office of the City Clerk.

PUBLIC HEALTH CONSIDERATIONS AND ABSENTEE VOTING

A person can register and vote by absentee if, based on their own health circumstances, medical authorities advise them to avoid going out in public. This applies to:

 

  1. voters with symptoms of a communicable disease or illness;
  2. voters who, due to their own health circumstances, limit public exposure in their day-to-day life as a preventative measure.

 

These two types of voters can reasonably conclude that a “physical disability” exists within the meaning of RSA 654:16 and 654:17, absentee registration and RSA 657:1, absentee voting.
