Voting ID Laws Questions and Answers

What type of ID will I need to vote?
• Driver’s license issued by any state or federal government;
• Non-driver ID card issued by NH DMV or motor vehicle agency of another state;
• Photo ID card for “voting identification only” issued by NH DMV (RSA 260:21);
• United States armed services identification card;
• United States passport or passcard;
• NH student ID card (see more information below);
• A photo ID not mentioned above, but determined to be legitimate by the moderator, supervisors of the checklist, or clerk of a town, ward or city. If any person authorized to challenge a voter does so under this provision, the voter shall be required to fill out a challenged voter affidavit before obtaining a ballot.
• Verification of the voter’s identity by a moderator or supervisor of the checklist or clerk of a town, ward or city (not a ballot clerk). If any person authorized to challenge a voter does so under this provision, the voter shall be required to fill out a challenged voter affidavit before obtaining a ballot.

An acceptable photo ID must have an expiration date or date of issuance. The ID will remain valid 5 years beyond the expiration date unless the voter is 65 or older in which case an acceptable photo ID may be used without regard to expiration date. The name on the ID shall substantially conform to the name on the checklist.

 What if I do not have an approved photo ID?
Any voter who does not present an approved photo ID will be permitted to vote after executing a “challenged voter affidavit”. A voter who does not have an approved photo ID may obtain a free photo ID for voting purposes only by presenting a voucher from their town/city clerk or the Secretary of State to any NH DMV office that issues identification.
Is there any post-election action required by me after I vote without an approved photo ID?

If you filled out a “challenged voter affidavit” in order to vote on Election Day, you will receive a verification letter from the Secretary of State requesting confirmation that you voted in the election. If you do not respond in writing to the Secretary of State within 90 days of the date it was mailed, the Attorney General will conduct an investigation to determine whether fraudulent voting occurred.

More on student ID cards:
Acceptable student photo ID cards must be issued by:
• A college, university, or career school approved or licensed to operate in New Hampshire
• A public high school in New Hampshire
• A non-public high school in New Hampshire accredited by a private school accrediting agency that is recognized by the NH Department of Education.
• Dartmouth College
• A college or university operated by the university system of New Hampshire or the community college system of New Hampshire

Beginning in 2014 all colleges or universities operated by the university system or community college system of New Hampshire must include the date of issuance on the student ID card. Student ID cards without a date of issuance will be accepted until September 1, 2018. Each August the Commissioner of the Department of Education will provide to the Secretary of State a list of all approved, licensed, and accredited schools from which a student ID is acceptable.
Acceptable student photo ID card must be issued by:
• A college, university, or career school approved or licensed to operate in New Hampshire
