Voter Registration Form: Information that must be provided includes name, address (mailing and legal residence), place and date of birth and proof of citizenship. Filling out the voter registration form and signing it involves a solemn oath that the information is true.
Party Affiliation: No one is required to list a party affiliation, but in New Hampshire one may register as a Democrat or Republican. Listing oneself as undeclared means that one has no party preference; there is no "independent" party. In primary elections an undeclared voter may request any party's ballot at the polls and will be listed on the checklist in the future as affiliated with that party. A voter who wishes to return to undeclared status after voting may do so at the place of polling, however, change of party affiliation from one party to another may be done no sooner than the day after election.
Rights and Responsibilities: If the qualifications to vote are met, the Supervisors of the Checklist will add the applicant to the voter checklist.
