VOTERS AND CHECKLISTS
General Voter Registration
654:13 Action by Supervisors.
I. If the supervisors decide to add the name of the applicant to the checklist, then they shall retain the original of the registration form for their own file, which shall be retained in accordance with RSA 33-A:3-a. If the applicant entered a place last registered to vote on the voter registration form, the supervisors shall enter that data into the statewide centralized voter registration database. Upon entry of the voter record in the statewide centralized voter registration database, the supervisors of the checklist in another New Hampshire city or town will receive notice through the statewide centralized voter registration database that the voter has moved.
II. If the supervisors decide not to add the name of the applicant to the checklist, they shall send notification in writing to the applicant within 7 days stating the reason for the denial. They shall write the word "REJECTED" and the date of rejection across the registration form. They shall retain the original registration form and a copy of the denial notification in accordance with RSA 33-A:3-a.
III. The secretary of state shall provide information on individuals who report being previously registered to vote out of state to the chief elections officer of that state. The secretary of state may use secure electronic information transfer. The secretary of state shall pursue establishing routine secure electronic transfers of this information between states. When electronic information transfer from another state occurs the supervisors of the checklist where the person is registered in New Hampshire will receive notice through the statewide centralized voter registration database that the voter has registered in another state. Unless the supervisors possess evidence that the notice is inaccurate, they shall remove the voter from the checklist as provided in RSA 654:36.
