What you need to register to vote on election day

To register, you will need to provide documents that prove your Identity and Age.     

  1. A driver’s license or non-driver ID from any state satisfies proof of identity and age.   

  2. A student ID from a certified NH college or university (and Dartmouth) can be used to verify identity, as can a military ID.

If you do not have these, you can prove your identity, age, domicile and/or citizenship, by signing a Qualified Voter Affidavit, in front of an election official.

Documents issued by the school you attend that show your name and your on campus address satisfy the requirement. Students may use a smartphone to show a document from their college that includes their campus address.

There are many documents that will satisfy this requirement. Visit the NH Secretary of State website to see more.

There will be plenty of people at the polling station to help you if you have questions.

 

When can I register?

New Hampshire allows same day voter registration, meaning you can register and vote on Election Day.

 Just be sure to bring all the required identification documents.

You can also register in advance.
