Mock Election Primary Voting Ballots

There are three ways you can vote . Online, using state paper ballots or using NH Mock Election paper ballots.

Students need to pick a party – Democrat or Republican - and only vote in that party's primary.

Candidates listed on the ballots only include those candidates that are registered to be on the ballot in New Hampshire. Some candidates on the ballot registered, but have since dropped out. Other major candidates elected not to register for the NH primary.

Individual students can vote online, you do not need to let us know your vote totals for online votes. If you vote using paper ballots, email your vote totals to sadams@nhpbs.org on or before February 5. We will be posting results throughout the day. We will be hosting a live stream from Franklin Pierce College in Manchester from 10-2 p.m. covering the vote totals and featuring special guests throughout the day. More details below!

Online Voting

In the New Hampshire Primary, when you go to vote, they will check to see what party you have registered with and then give you the ballot for that party. If you are not registered with either party, you can ask for either ballot, but once you do, you become a member of that party. After you vote, you can fill out a card or sign a list and return to being undeclared.
