Register to Vote!

If you will be 18 years of age or older on the day of the next election, and a United States Citizen, you may register with the town clerk up to 10 days before any election. You may also register on election day at the polling place.

You will fill out a standard voter registration form and will be required to show proof of age, citizenship, and domicile. Feel free to email the town clerk if you have any questions about the process.


Voter ID Law

According to NH RSA 659:13, residents are required to provide photo identification when voting. Read more about the details of the law on the NH Secretary of State’s Proof of Voter Identity Instruction Form.

  • Types of ID You May Use to Vote

    • Driver’s license issued by any state or federal government
    • Non-driver ID card issued by NH DMV or motor vehicle agency of another state
    • Photo ID card for “voting identification only” issued by NH DMV (RSA 260:21);
    • United States armed services identification card
    • United States passport or passcard
    • NH student ID card (see more information on Student IDs)
    • A photo ID not mentioned above, but determined to be legitimate by the moderator, supervisors of the checklist, or clerk of a town, ward or city. If any person authorized to challenge a voter does so under this provision, the voter
      shall be required to fill out a challenged voter affidavit before obtaining a ballot.
    • Verification of the voter’s identity by a moderator or supervisor of the checklist or clerk of a town, ward or city (not a ballot clerk). If any person authorized to challenge a voter does so under this provision, the voter shall be required to fill out a challenged voter affidavit before obtaining a ballot.

    NOTE: An acceptable photo ID must have an expiration date or date of issuance. The ID will remain valid 5 years beyond the expiration date unless the voter is 65 or older in which case an acceptable photo ID may be used without regard to expiration date. The name on the ID shall substantially conform to the name on the checklist.


Absentee Ballots

Don’t let your voice go uncounted just because you can’t get to the polls! 

If you’re going to be out of town on Election Day, or if you will be unable to vote in person due to a disability, religious observance, or employment obligation, you can place your vote by Absentee Ballot.

Apply for an Absentee Ballot: You can request an absentee ballot application directly from the town clerk, or download a printable application from the Secretary of State. If you can’t drop it off in person, mail your application to the Rollinsford Town Clerk at PO BOX 309, Rollinsford, NH 03869. Absentee ballots are available at the town hall approximately 30 days prior to each election. Be sure to give the process plenty of time!

Once You Have Your Ballot: By law, your completed absentee ballot must be returned to the town clerk before 5 pm the day before Election Day. Keep in mind that our Town Hall is only open until 1pm on Mondays. Make sure you’re able to get your ballot to them in time.
