It’s Election Day! Vote!


It’s November 6th, It’s Election Day! GOTV efforts are underway and candidates and campaigns are in the last push to encourage voter turn-out.

Sunapee voters go to the Sherburne Gym, Route 11, to cast their ballots. The poll hours: 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

On the ballot are candidates for federal, state and county offices, from president to county commissioners, as well as two controversial constitutional amendment questions.

For voting sites across the state visit the Secretary of State website: poll locations and hours.

If you’d like to preview your ballot, visit the SOS website for towns using Accuvote ballots and paper ballots. Sunapee voters can visit the Town Clerk website for voter and election information.

Constitutional Questions

At the bottom of the ballot this year, voters will find constitutional amendment questions including one about taxation, the other about legislative power and the judiciary. Telegraph staff writer David Brooks provides a summary for voters. Visit:

Voter ID and Registration

New Hampshire poll workers will be asking voters for identification. But you can vote without it by signing a “challenged voter affidavit.” It declares the voter is “duly qualified” to vote in the town.

Valid forms of voter ID include a driver’s license, non-driver’s photo ID, student or military ID, government ID, U.S. passport (even if expired), and any other ID acceptable by the supervisor of the checklist, the moderator or the clerk.

Same-day registration is allowed with proof of age, domicile and citizenship. A driver’s license, passport or birth certificate is normally acceptable proof.

For more information, visit the N.H. Secretary of State.
