Register to vote in New Hampshire, or learn more about voter ID & rights.
New Hampshire relies on in person voter registration with valid ID at the local clerk's office or on Election Day. The voter registration deadline is determined by the local clerk, but is most often Oct. 21st.
This year, due to COVID-19, you can request to register to vote by mail directly from your local clerk. It is recommended that you start this process at least two weeks before Oct. 21st.
Your polling place hours vary by municipality, but must open by 11 a.m. and cannot close before 7 p.m.
Parties have the option of allowing unaffiliated voters to declare a party affiliation at the polls and allow those voters to participate in their primary. Change of party will not be accepted with election day registration.
Some congressional seats, state offices and constitutional amendments may be included on the ballot.
Early Voting Dates: Varies by local clerk
You can vote in-person at your town or city clerk’s office approximately 30 days before the election, using an absentee ballot.
To vote absentee by-mail, first you’ll need to apply for an absentee ballot at least one week before the election. Then, when you complete your absentee ballot, it must be received by election day. Absentee ballot requests by-mail open 90 days prior to any election.
Whether it’s in-person or by-mail, you’ll need to give an excuse to vote by absentee ballot. Info here on what qualifies. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic is a qualifying excuse for all voters to vote with an absentee ballot.
