  • In order to register, you will need to provide proof of your identity, age, citizenship, and domicile. Acceptable forms of proof are detailed here.

  • College students can choose to vote in New Hampshire or their home state, but may only be registered in one state. A document from the college in New Hampshire that you attend, showing that you live in campus housing is satisfactory to fulfill the domicile requirement. Many colleges and universities provide students with satisfactory documents already.


The deadline to register to vote in New Hampshire before the General Election depends on your local clerk, usually 6-13 days prior. However, you can still register to vote the day of the election.
