Where do I register to vote?

The voter registration process in New Hampshire is designed to place in person before a designated election official. New Hampshire currently does not allow for open voter registration by mail. Individuals may register to vote at the Town Office (41 South Main Street) Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Applications may be made at any time of the year (except 10 days prior to any election). There may also be specially scheduled registration sessions leading up to major elections; these events will be posted on the Town website.

Absentee voter registration is available to residents who cannot physically present themselves to the Town Clerk's Office due to disability or temporary absence. If registering absentee, we cannot provide any forms via email or by giving them to someone else - they must be mailed via U.S. post directly to the registrant. The registrant must have access to a printer as paper copies of documentation that proves their identity and Hanover domicile must be posted back to our office along with the completed voter registration form and absentee voter registration affidavit (which must be witnessed by someone other than the registrant).

You may also register same-day on Election Day in New Hampshire - however, we encourage you to register early in order to avoid any unnecessary delays at the polling place.
