New Hampshire (NH)

Write-In

A voter may write-in the name of a candidate on the ballot.

In New Hampshire, both "Bernie Sanders" and "Bernard Sanders" are acceptable and will be tallied together.

You need not specify a Vice Presidential candidate in order for votes for Bernie to be counted, but because New Hampshire does not currently know how it will treat VP write-ins should Bernie win the state, it might be a good idea to write someone in. We suggest Tulsi Gabbard, since we are trying for unity across write-in states, but the choice is ultimately yours.

New Hampshire law does not permit allowing your ballot to be seen by others. This would include distributing a photograph or electronic copy via social media. However, it's perfectly ok to make a copy of your ballot for your own personal record.

New Hampshire state law does not require write-in presidential candidates to file any special paperwork in advance of the election.
