How to register to vote

There are four ways to register to vote in New Hampshire. Each requires proof of identity, age, citizenship, and where you live. If you do NOT have documentation proving one or more of these things, you may sign an affidavit.

Register to vote at the Town Clerk's Office up to 6-13 days before any election

  • The Town Clerk's Office is located at 6 Post Office Square, Plymouth, New Hampshire 03264

  • Office hours are Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 4:00pm & Wednesday, 8:30am to 5:30pm

Register to vote with your local Supervisors of the Checklist

  • Supervisors of the Checklist are required to meet at designated times to accept voter registrations and changes in party affiliation. Please see the posting at the town office for their next meeting. 

Register to vote on the day of any election, at the polling place

  • Find the voter registration table at Plymouth Elementary School. This will take extra time. 

Register absentee, by mail

  • Voters who are unable to register in person because of physical disability, religious reasons, or absence from their town, may register by mail. “Disability” includes people with health circumstances who are advised by medical authorities to avoid going out in public. This includes voters with symptoms of a communicable disease or illness and those who, because of their own health circumstances, limit public exposure in their day-to-day life as a preventative measure. 

  • Request an absentee voter registration packet from your town or city clerk.

  • The absentee voter registration form must be witnessed by another person. Both forms are to be returned to the town clerk. 

A person must meet the following to register and vote in New Hampshire:

  • 18 years of age or older on election day

  • A United States citizen;

  • And domiciled in the town where the person seeks to vote

Voter Qualifications

How to request an absentee ballot

To request an absentee ballot in your town/city, you must complete an Absentee Ballot Application and send the application to your Town/City Clerk. Applications may be delivered in person, emailed, faxed, or mailed to the Town Clerk's Office.

 

 Voters may request an absentee ballot based on one of the following qualifiers:

  • You plan to be absent on the day of the election from the city, town, or unincorporated place where you are domiciled

  • You cannot appear in public on election day because of observance of a religious commitment

  • You are unable to vote in person due to a disability

  • You cannot appear at any time during polling hours at your polling place because of an employment obligation

When returning your absentee ballot, please carefully read the instructions enclosed with your ballot. The ballot must be placed in the small envelope, sealed, and the appropriate affidavit signed. Place this envelope in the mailing envelope with your printed name in the upper left corner and postage affixed.

 

Absentee ballots delivered by mail shall be accepted up to 5:00pm on election day. If delivered by an authorized agent, the agent must provide identification and sign an Absentee Ballot Return Form (RSA 657:17). 

Contact your local Town or City Clerk to serve as a poll worker on election day.
