Voter Registration Information

The following page provides information about registering to vote in the City of Lebanon. Please read through the information carefully.

Where do I register to vote?

You can register to vote in the following locations: 

City Clerk’s Office: Although we are currently closed to the public, voters can register at the City Clerk's office in-person. Beginning October 5, 2020 in-person voter registration will be available Monday through Friday from 8:00AM to 4:00PM. Please note, there is a ten-day cut-off period prior to each election when the City Clerk’s Office is unable to process voter registrations. If you’re not able to visit our office prior to the cut-off, don’t worry, there are still other opportunities for voter registration. Please continue reading this section.

Supervisor of the Checklist Sessions: Supervisor Sessions are held in the City Clerk’s office at our temporary location of 20 West Park St, Suite 100. Once a Supervisor Session has been scheduled, the information will be posted on our website. 

Same-day Voter Registration: The State of New Hampshire allows for residents to register to vote at their polling location on Election Day. (These voters are permitted to vote that day as well.) To determine your polling location, you can: contact our office, use the City Wards by Street List or visit the State of NH Voter Information Look-Up Website.

Absentee: If you are unable to come to our office, attend a Supervisor Session or appear in person at your polling place, you can still register to vote. If you plan to vote by absentee but you are not registered, please submit an absentee ballot request. You will be mailed voter registration materials with your ballot. If you plan to vote in-person on election day, but wish to register ahead of time, please call our office at 603-448-3054 and we will mail you a voter registration packet. 

How do I register to vote?

To register to vote, you fill out a voter registration card and present proof of identity, citizenship, age, and residency in Lebanon, NH. If you do not have proof of citizenship, you will be asked to complete a qualified voter affidavit.
