CONCORD - It is election day around the country and here in New Hampshire experts say we could see record turnout for a midterm election. Before you head out to the polls, here are the top 5 things to know before you go.
1. Photo ID can expediate the process but is not necessary - license, non-drivers ID card, military ID card, passport are all acceptable. If you don't have an ID or you choose not to show an ID, you can still vote, but you must sign an affidavit verifying you are who you say you are.
2. Know your Polling Centers and Hours Open - you can find all that information on the Secretary of State's website.
3. Not Registered? No Problem - New Hampshire is one of only a half dozen states that allow election day registration. Head to your polling center and some form of documentation that verifies you live in that district, like a utility bill or mortgage statement. If you don't have one of those things, you can sign an affadavit to register to vote.
4. No "Ballot" Selfies - Leave your camera phone in the car, purse or your pocket. Taking pictures of your completed ballot is illegal in New Hampshire and currently 3 people are being investigated for this crime during the primary election. The ACLU is contesting this law saying it violates our constitutional rights.
5. Candidate Confusion? There's an App for That - The bipartisan Live Free or Die Alliance has a new app called the New Hampshire Voter Guide 2014 that outlines candidates and where they stand on important issues.
The Attorney General's office has a dedicate phone line set up for election questions and complaints. 1 (866)-VOTER-03
