Do you have concerns about falling?  A Matter of Balance can help

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.
