Am I eligible to vote in New Hampshire?
To be eligible to vote in New Hampshire, you must be a U.S. citizen, at least 18 years of age on Election Day, domiciled in the town or ward where you intend to vote, and registered to vote. (For more discussion of what it means to be domiciled, see voter registration information below.)
You cannot register and vote if you have been sentenced or are serving time for a felony crime. After your sentence is complete and you have been discharged, the correctional facility will give you written notice that you may vote. You can vote if your sentence was suspended or if you are on parole.
