Are you registered to vote?
The primary election is on September 13, 2022, which means there’s still plenty of time to get registered to vote! In New Hampshire, you’re able to register either before the election, or even the day of.
To register before the primary, you must provide proof of your identity, age, citizenship, and domicile to register. Proof is accepted via documents or by affidavit if you do not have them. You may present documents in paper or electronic form. The deadline to register before the election is usually 6-13 days prior.
You can also register the day of the election. The same requirements apply to registering on the day of as they do for registering ahead of time. However, if you do not have all your documents available on hand, you can sign an affidavit. Your local officials will have the form!

Need to vote absentee in the
In New Hampshire, anyone can request an absentee ballot for both primary and general elections! It’s a convenient way to fulfill your civic duty if you’re unable to make it to the polls in person.
There are several reasons to request an absentee ballot:
You won’t be in town during election day (traveling for work, going away to college, etc).
You’re unable to vote in person due to a disability or illness
If you’re unable to leave work, or are caring for a child or infirm adult during polling hours
Religious reasons that prevent you from appearing in public at the polls
Contact your town clerk to request a registration form. Once you complete this form, mail, fax or deliver it by hand to your local City or Town Clerk. You’ll receive your ballot around 30 days before the election!
How do I complete and send in my absentee ballot?
Once you receive your ballot in the mail, it’s time to vote! If you live in Senate District 12, I hope you vote for Melanie Levesque for State Senate.
Make sure you sign the affidavit envelope. If your signature is missing, the ballot will be challenged, which means it won’t get counted.
Once the affidavit envelope is signed, place it in the return envelope.
You can return via mail or in person, by you or someone qualified to deliver for you.
That’s it! Make your voice heard this primary, whether you’re in the booth or at your kitchen table.
