The polls will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. If you are not sure on your party affiliation, you may visit the City Clerk’s Office to view the posted checklist or visit the State of New Hampshire Voter Information Look-up website at http://app.sos.nh.gov.
If you are listed on the checklist as affiliated with either the Republican or Democratic party you may vote only on that party’s ballot at the Presidential Primary. If you are registered as Undeclared, you may declare a party affiliation on primary day. If you have voted at a previous State or Presidential Primary, and you have not subsequently changed your party affiliation, you are registered as affiliated with the party whose ballot you voted at that primary.
