Manchester School District Charter Commission

Published: 07/05/2019 10:00 AM

As the municipal filing period approaches (July 8, 2019 - July 19, 2019), this filing period will also include candidates interested in serving on the Manchester School District Charter Commission recently approved by the legislature (HB 544).  The nine candidates receiving the most votes from across the city at the November 5, 2019 Municipal General Election will go on to serve as the representatives tasked with developing a local procedure to revise, amend, or replace the Manchester school district charter.  Please note that at the time of this announcement, HB 544 has not been signed into law by Governor Sununu which could impact the necessity of electing candidates for this commission.

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.
