Welcome to the City of Manchester, NH Official Website
City Clerk Announcements
We apologize to those looking to observe the ballot testing process in Manchester today. We must move the date of our ballot testing and sealing of tabulator machines to September 5th at 9:00 a.m. in the Walter A. Stiles Conference Room at City Hall as we still await our ballot delivery from the state.
These ballots and tabulators will be used the following week in the State Primary Election on September 11, 2018. Polls are open between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
The City Clerk’s Office is hosting a special, critical-incident response training by the Manchester Police Department for all election officials. Active-shooter incidents have unfortunately become a very real and unpredictable part of our society. This two-hour training is intended to educate and prepare participants for the proper response to these high stress, critical incidents – Avoid. Deny. Defend.
Please join us for this training session on Friday, August 24th from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. in the Aldermanic Chambers at City Hall. Attendance (and parking) is limited on a first-come, first-served basis. You are encouraged to RSVP by Wednesday, August 22nd to the City Clerk’s Office via email at email@example.com or by calling 624-6455.
Sample ballots for the upcoming State Partisan Primary Election to be held on September 11, 2018 in all twelve wards are now available.
