Memo from the Attorney General About Voter Registration in NH

Published: 10/06/2017 - City Clerk Announcements

Recent publicity about the 2017 changes to the voter registration requirements in New Hampshire has made the entire registration process seem daunting and confusing.  For the large majority of new voters, registering to vote remains a simple process. You may visit our How to Register to Vote page for a sample list of documents and procedures that will be accepted to prove your domicile, identity, age, and citizenship for voting.

For those residents that simply do not have suitable proof of domicile, particularly if you are trying register on election day, you will be able to register and vote on election day by completing the necessary forms at the polls.  The NH Attorney General memorandum released on September 18, 2017 explains the typical documents used to produce evidence of domicile along with the nuances within the legal definition of "domicile for voting purposes."

Not sure where to vote?  Check out our interactive "Where do I vote" page for an easy guide to get you where you need to go or call the City Clerk's Office at 624-6455.

The Manchester Water Works (MWW) has applied for funds through the State of New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund (DWSRF), in accordance with Chapter Env-Dw 1100.

City of Manchester, New Hampshire Receives RWJF Culture of Health Prize

City of Manchester, New Hampshire Receives RWJF Culture of Health Prize For Efforts that Give All Residents the Chance to Thrive

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Recognizes the City of Manchester, NH for Weaving a Culture of Health throughout the Community’s Fabric

Manchester, NH (September 14, 2016) Manchester is one of seven winners of the 2016 RWJF Culture of Health Prize awarded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the nation’s largest philanthropy devoted solely to health. The Prize honors communities for their efforts to ensure all residents have the opportunity to live longer, healthier, and more productive lives.

Manchester is being nationally recognized for bringing partners together to rally around a shared vision of health, drawing especially on the wisdom, voice, and experience of residents themselves. Chosen from nearly 200 applicant communities across the country, Manchester’s award winning efforts include its response to the emerging opioid and heroin epidemic—which has successfully mobilized first responders, community organizations, and health care providers to connect residents with critical treatment services. When over half of the City’s school children became enrolled in free and reduced meals, city leaders in partnership with residents worked to transform schools in the city’s most socioeconomically disadvantaged areas into neighborhood health and education hubs. Former textile mills have been converted into high-tech spaces and outdoor recreation areas, spurring economic growth and providing more opportunities for physical activity. Funders are collaboratively investing in new ways to bring projects to scale.
