Supervisors of the Check List

SUPERVISORS OF THE CHECKLIST

The Supervisors of the Checklist are responsible for maintaining the list of registered voters in Rye (the checklist). There are three Supervisors of the Checklist, each of whom is elected by town vote to a six-year term. Currently the Supervisors are Sally S. King (2018), Jane Holway (2016) and Madeline Chichester (2014). New residents of Rye or residents who have attained legal voting age register to vote at the Town Clerk’s office in the Town Hall. It is the Supervisors of the Checklist who approve each addition to the list of registered voters. Contact the Supervisors of the Checklist at the Town Clerk’s office (603) 964-8562.

The Supervisors of the Checklist meet four times annually to review and approve or reject new voter applications. The reasons for possible rejection might be because someone is not a Rye resident, is too young, or is not a US citizen. Often the issue is inadequate documentation which can be easily resolved.

The Supervisors’ meetings are noticed and are open to the public. The Supervisors are required by law to hold a meeting ten days prior to each election. Residents who wish to register to vote, and registered voters who wish to change their affiliation from “Undeclared” to a political party should check with the Supervisors of the Checklist or the Town Clerk. The Supervisors of the Checklist are present at each year’s Town Deliberative Session, School Board Deliberative Session, and at the polling place on every Election Day. Residents may register to vote at the Deliberative Sessions or on Election Day, as long as they have the required identification and proof of residency. While anybody may attend the Deliberative Sessions, only registered voters may speak or vote at those meetings.
