City Clerk Announcements
For those who are interested in serving your community on a local level, the muncipal filing period is fast approaching in early July. Declarations of Candidacy will be accepted when the filing period opens at 8:00 a.m. on July 10, 2017 through 5:00 p.m. on July 21, 2017. There is no better way to make a difference in your local government than serving in any one of a variety of elected positions from mayor or alderman to ward moderator, ward clerk, or selectman. For more information on filing for office, see our How to File for Office page.
For a list of filings please see 2017 Municipal Candidate Filings.
On June 6th, the Board of Mayor & Aldermen accepted a request on behalf of the ward 6 selectmen seeking a move of all voting activities to the Henry J. McLaughlin Middle School, effective immediately. Polling location change notices were mailed to the addresses of all registered voters during the week of July 3rd.
Selectmen are excited over the new polling location within the gymnasium of one of the city's premier middle schools. Ample parking and an expansive, modern space for all voting activities highlight the list of improvements to your voting experience.
Your next scheduled election at Henry J. McLaughlin Middle School will be held on September 19, 2017. If you need any assistance or further information on the new location please contact us at 603-624-6455.
The Office of the City Clerk and the Manchester Board of Registrars is conducting a voter checklist verification process. This process began by reviewing the voting history of all 64,420 voters on checklists citywide and provides us with a report of any voter who has not voted since November of 2012. Currently, there are 8,577 registered voters who have not voted in these last nine (9) citywide elections. Beginning early June 2017, each of these voters will receive a postcard from our office to determine if they still reside in Manchester and wish to remain a registered voter.
This postcard will provide notification of the pending removal from the voter checklist and an explanation of how to update registration information. All registered voters who receive this notification will need to reregister with the Office of the City Clerk, or at the polls on election day, prior to voting at an upcoming election.
For more information on how to register to vote or questions about this notification, you may reach us at 624-6455 or by email at email@example.com.
