How do I register to vote?

Salem's Supervisors of the Checklist ("Supervisors") administer voter registration.

Voter registration applications can be picked up and submitted at the Town Clerk's Office, Town Hall, 33 Geremonty Drive, during regular business hours. The Supervisors will hold additional special hours just before elections and before the beginning of a filing period. Voter registration closes 10 days before an election, however New Hampshire permits same day voter registration at the polling places.

You are required to show proof of age, residency and citizenship. Acceptable forms of proof of age include a driver's license, passport or birth certificate. A driver's license, utility bill or other mailed correspondence is acceptable for proof of residency. A passport, birth certificate or naturalization papers are proof of citizenship. Citizenship and residency affidavits are available if you cannot provide necessary documentation.

When you register to vote you are registered for all elections, and town and school meetings.
