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 official form (affidavit).

Register to vote at the town (or city) clerk’s office up to 6-13 days before any election

  • The town clerk’s office is at 756 Dalton Road, Dalton, NH 03598.
  • The town clerk’s office hours are Tuesday and Thursday from 7am to 4pm, unless otherwise posted on our HOME page.

Register to vote with your local Supervisors of the Checklist

  • Supervisors of the Checklist are required to meet at designated times to accept registrations and changes in party affiliation.
  • These times are posted in the town office and other public places (be specific about where).
  • (Supervisors of the Checklist hours should also be posted here and the list updated as needed.)

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

  • This will take extra time. Look for the voter registration table.

Register absentee, by mail

  • If you are unable to register in person because of physical disability (including serious illness or fear of contracting serious illness), religious beliefs, military service, or because of temporary absence, you may register by mail.
  • 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 your town or city clerk.
