You may register to vote in New Hampshire if you are a U.S. citizen, spend the majority of the year living in New Hampshire, intend to stay here long-term and will be at least 18 years old on the date of the next election. There is no minimum period of time you must live in the state in order to be eligible.

Right now, voting in New Hampshire does not mean you are obligated to register your car here or get a New Hampshire driver's license. However, that will change when HB 1264 (2018) takes effect in July 2019.


New Hampshire wants you to register to vote in person at your town clerk's office if at all possible. If you can't register in person, here's what you do:

  1. Call your town clerk and ask them to mail you a voter registration form. This is the only way to get the form -- sadly they won't let us give it to you.

  2. You can look up the phone number here.

  3. Fill out the voter registration form in front of a notary.

  4. Mail the form back to your town clerk. The mailing address will be on the form.

  5. If you need a stamp, you can buy one at the post office or at any grocery store. Just ask the cashier to sell you a stamp.
