You must be a registered voter in Strafford to vote at the Annual School District Meeting

 In accordance with NH RSA 654:39, every ten years the supervisors of the checklist in each city and town in the State of New Hampshire are required to conduct a verification of the voter checklist. Any person on the checklist who has not voted in the past four years must re-register to remain on the checklist. The Supervisors mailed notice letters in May of 2021 to these voters at the address the voter provided when registering. 

If you received a letter and wish to remain on the voter checklist, you will need to re-register to vote.

 Election Laws Here  

Disclaimer: The complete election laws are available on-line. A court order, however, struck down all changes to the law in Senate Bill 3 (2017). The on-line election laws currently show the enjoined language. Do not rely on the online law without referring to the court’s decision and Senate Bill 3 to determine the current law. The on-line election laws do not reflect the law presently in effect for voter registration.
