Will the research comm now focus on New Hampshire research?

If so, I would like to help.

How do I join up?

FYI:

HOW TO REGISTER TO VOTE
IN NEW HAMPSHIRE

WHO CAN REGISTER
New Hampshire residents who will be 18 years of age or older on election day, and a United States Citizen, may register with the town or city clerk where they live up to 10 days before any election. You may also register on election day at the polling place. The town clerk's office can inform voters of what proof of qualification they should bring to register.

There is no minimum period of time you are required to have lived in the state before being allowed to register.  You may register as soon as you move into your new community.

HOW TO REGISTER
1) Apply to your town or city clerk's office.  You will be required to fill out a standard voter registration form.
2)  It may be easier for you to register with your community's Supervisors of the Checklist.  By law they are required to meet on the Saturday 10 days prior to each election.  Check the local newspaper(s) or call your clerk's office for the date and time of such meeting.
3)  Qualified individuals may also register to vote at the polling place on election day at all elections.  You will be asked to show proof of age, citizenship, and/or domicile.

POLITICAL PARTIES
When registering to vote, you will not be required to register as a member of a political party (republican or democratic) -- you may register as an undeclared voter.  However, while all registered voters are allowed to vote in a general election, only party members can vote in a primary election. Voters should be aware of their party status before a primary election.  If you voted on a party ballot in the 2002 state primary, you are now a registered member of that party unless you filled out a card to return to undeclared status.

NOTE: The last day to change your party affiliation for the 2004 Presidential Primary is October 31, 2003 with your supervisors of the checklist. Supervisors are required by law to meet on that date at least between 7:00 and 7:30 p.m.

If you are unsure of your party affiliation,  you should contact your town or city clerk, as they have the records of party membership. Or, if you are a party member and wish to change your registration status, initiate such a change by taking one of the following steps:

1)    Meet with the Supervisors of the Checklist no later than June 1, 2004 -- the last day to change your political party and still be eligible to vote in the state primary election, or register the change with your town or city clerk by that date.  This is the last day to register to vote if you wish to file as a candidate for the state primary election.

2)    If you are a registered member of a party, you may change your registration at any primary, however, you will not be allowed to vote in that primary.   Undeclared voters may declare a party and vote at any primary.  The law allows an undeclared voter to declare a party at the polls, vote the ballot of that party, and then change their party affiliation back to undeclared simply by completing the form available from the Supervisors of the Checklist at the polling place.
