Attn college students: Here's what you need to know about voting in New Hampshire

College students can vote in New Hampshire- just like everyone else!





Here are the only requirements to vote:

  • You must be a us citizen

  • You must be 18 years or older by e-day

  • You must be domiciled in New Hampshire



Don't worry! Domiciled is just a fancy word for "live". It means where you lay your head at night and where you choose to be a part of the community.


If you meet these, you can vote in NH!





Visit www.voteinnh.org to make a plan to vote, request your absentee ballot, find your polling location, and learn how to register.



Because #covidsucks, here are some detailed FAQs on certain situations:


What if my campus is remote in the fall- can I still vote?


If you were physically present in NH & made it your civic home, it remains your home until you make a new place your home. That means that students who are sheltering away from NH because of COVID-19 & intend to return are still considered to live here for voting purposes.


BUT if you have never lived in New Hampshire- you can't vote here- even if you're enrolled in a New Hampshire school. You need to have previously established a physical presence in NH and made it your home to vote.


I don't know what my address will be when I come back to campus. what should I put down for my address when I apply for an absentee ballot?


You'll want to put down the last place you physically lived in New Hampshire (EX. THE STREET ADDRESS OF YOUR CAMPUS HOUSING). You can provide a different mailing address (where you're living now while temporarily away from NH or your campus mailbox) for where they should send your ballot.


Do I need a license or a car registration to vote?


You do not need a driver's license in order to vote. You do not NEED to register a car to vote. Your license status has no effect whatsoever on your right to vote.
