The Rochester City Clerk’s Office is pleased to report the official city-wide voter returns for the September 13th NH State Primary. Voter turnout in Rochester was only 22.8% or 4,173 total votes cast out of a possible 18,334 registered voters.

“We want to thank everyone that participated in the NH State Primary on Tuesday,” said Kelly Walters, Rochester City Clerk. “I also want to thank the staff, election workers, and volunteers for all their hard work. Special thanks to Buildings and Grounds, Public Buildings, and the School Department for their cooperation and assistance.”
Walters is still encouraging Rochester citizens to register to vote if they haven’t already. Last year, the City of Rochester assembled a user-friendly, easy-to-use website that aims to assist new and first-time voters. The website includes information on how to register, find your ward by street address, look at sample ballots, and find polling locations.
“The purpose of our website is to assist anyone looking to participate in upcoming elections,” said Walters. “Voting is an important civic duty and we want to help make your voice heard.”
