Auburn voter registration and voting are the responsibility of local elected officials, including the Town Clerk, Supervisors of the Checklist, and Town Moderator.   This page contains information on:

  • When & Where to Vote
  • Voter Registration
  • Absentee Voting


Auburn has a single polling place, the Auburn Village School, at 11 Eaton Hill Road.  Polls are open from 7am - 7pm. 


New Hampshire residents who are United States citizens and who will be 18 years of age or older on election day, are eligible to vote. There is no minimum period of time you are required to have lived in the state before being allowed to register. You can only register in the town or ward in which you are domiciled.

You may register to vote at the Auburn Town Hall with the Town Clerk during regular office hours up to 10 days before any election or scheduled meeting.  Qualified individuals may also register to vote at the polling place on election day at all elections. The polling place for Auburn is the Auburn Village School.

You may also register with the Supervisors of the Checklist. By law, they are required to meet on the Saturday 10 days prior to each election. Call the Town Clerk's office for the date and time of such meeting.

No matter when or where you register to vote, you will be required to fill out a voter registration form and you will be asked to show proof of all four requirements:

  • Identity - US passport or state-issued photo ID;
  • Age - US passport, state-issued photo ID, or birth certificate;
  • Citizenship - US passport or US birth certificate;
  • Domicile - NH photo ID, or piece of mail showing Auburn address. 

Naturalized Citizens:  If you are a naturalized citizen you will also need to provide proof of your citizenship or you will be asked to complete a Qualified Voter Affidavit signed under the penalties of voting fraud set forth by State Law.


New Hampshire voters may vote by absentee ballot for specific reasons: being absent from the voter’s city or town, a religious observance, disability or illness, and employment commitments (including caregiving) during the entire time the polls are open. Absentee ballots may also be available when a weather emergency impacts an election.

1. Fill out an Application: 

2. Return the form to the Town Clerk.  You will receive a ballot and return envelopes.

3. Return Completed Absentee Ballots: 

  • In Person - to the Town Clerk until 5:00 pm the day before an election, or 
  • Returned By Mail - no later than 5:00 pm on Election Day.
  • In Person On Election Day - An Absentee Ballot Return Form will be required to be completed by a qualified person (delivery agent) who is returning an Absentee Ballot for a different person voting absentee.  The delivery agent will be required to show a Government issued Photo ID.
