New Hampshire law requires that the supervisors of the checklist verify the checklist every 10 years. Any person on the checklist who has not voted in the past four years must re-register to remain on the checklist. The supervisors are sending notice letters to these voters at the address the voter provided when registering.

The supervisors of the checklist for the Town of Freedom will hold a session for re-registering voters who have not voted since April 1, 2017, accepting applications for new voter registration, accepting requests for the correction of the checklist, and or change of political party affiliation on Wednesday, July 14, from 7-8 p.m. at the Freedom Town Hall.

To register, you will need to provide proof of your identity, age, citizenship, and domicile. Proof can be either by documents or if you do not have documents with you, by affidavit. Wearing a mask and continuing the practice of social distancing are recommended.

The Freedom Historical Society is looking for photos of three past residents of Freedom. They would appreciate any photos or stories of Henry Lamb (1906-2001), Barney Jones (1911-1981) and Frank Wood (1850-1937). Send an email to or call/text (617) 780-5724 if you have information or pictures to share.
