Party Changes Prior to the 2024 Presidential Primary

Although the date of the 2024 Presidential Primary has not been determined at this time, the cut-off for voters to change party affiliation prior to the Presidential Primary will likely be on Saturday October 28, 2023. This information will be updated closer to that time, once it has been announced by the NH Secretary of State. Voters can change their party affiliation anytime between now and that date, except for during the small cut-off window prior to the Municipal Election.
