How to Vote in NH’s Primary Election
Voters will cast their ballots Tuesday in the primary election for a wide range of local, regional, and statewide offices.
For the candidates, it was one last weekend of campaigning in person and pushing out messages on their social media platforms, radio, and television.
Several candidates in the First Congressional District Republican primary hit the Hampton Beach Seafood Festival including Gayle Huff Brown, Karoline Leavitt, Matt Mowers, and U.S. Senate candidate Chuck Morse.
COAST buses will provide free rides to the polls on primary voting day. On an honor system, riders just need to tell the driver they are on their way to vote.
The basics of primary day voting:
WHEN TO VOTE: Polls are open by 7 a.m. or 8 a.m., and close at 7 p.m. Check your town's hours on the NH Department of State website.
WHO CAN VOTE: Voters will vote in the primary of the party they are registered in. Undeclared voters can change their status on primary day and then change back at the polls.
You may also register to vote for the first time at your polling place if you are at least 18 years old on the day of the election. There is no minimum residency requirement.
WHO IS ON THE BALLOT: Select your town on the NH Department of State website to see a sample ballot.
WHERE: The NH Department of State website has several ways to check your polling location.
