City Clerk Announcements

Pardon Our Appearance

Published: 03/19/2019

Please pardon our appearance while the City Hall clock tower is being repaired.  Upon your next visit, the main entrance to City Hall will likely be closed during the day to allow for workers to safely operate overhead.  All other entrances, including the adjacent ramp entrance, will remain open to access any department within the City Hall complex. 

Internally, the grand staircase and elevator will still provide you with full access to the offices and meeting rooms inside City Hall.  If you have accessibility concerns, please contact the City Clerk's Office at 603-624-6455 or email us at

Thank you for your patience while we repair this 174-year-old city treasure.

Notice To Libertarian Voters

Published: 12/19/2018

  New Hampshire law, RSA 652:11, requires that a political party’s candidate for governor receive at least 4 percent of the total number of votes cast for the office of governor in order for that party to retain recognition as a party. The Libertarian candidate for Governor received less than 4 percent of the votes for governor in the 2018 General Election.  As of January 2, 2019, the Libertarian party will no longer be recognized as a political party.

Notices have been sent to all registered Libertarian voters in Manchester explaining that they have the option to come to the City Clerk's Office to change their registered affiliation to another party or take no action and they will be automatically changed to "undeclared" status. 

The effect of this law has no bearing on the upcoming non-partisan municipal elections here in Manchester during 2019.  Should these voters formerly registered as Libertarians want to register as either a Republican or Democrat however, they must do so prior to the Presidential Primary Election in 2020. 

Any "undeclared" voter may declare their party preference at the next Presidential Primary Election and then revert back to "undeclared" status while at the polls or remain in their chosen party.
