How to Register to Vote


Any Bow resident who is at least 18 years old, or who will be 18 on or before the next election day, may register to vote in person at the Town Clerk's Office, 10 Grandview Road, during regular office hours, 7:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Eligible voters may register to vote with the Supervisors of the Checklist at the voting polls on Election Day. You must bring a photo ID and proof of residency and/or citizenship. If you do not have evidence of residency or citizenship, you will be required to sign either a Domicile Affidavit or a Citizenship Affidavit. Please call the Town Clerk's Office if you have any questions on the type of documentation required at 603-223-3980 or email

College Students

If you are a college student away from home, who is not registered to vote, contact the Town Clerk's Office for an Absentee Voter's Registration Packet. You can call the office at 603-223-3980 or email

Deadline to Register to Vote

New Hampshire does not permit anyone to register to vote during the ten days prior to an election. This allows the Town Clerk and Supervisors of the Checklist time to prepare the checklists that will be used at the elections. However, you can always register to vote on Election Day at the polls.
