No Authority in New Hampshire Law to Postpone Elections
"All towns shall hold an election annually for the election of town officers on the second Tuesday in March, except those towns which have adopted an alternative date under RSA 40:14 or those towns which have adopted the provisions of RSA 31:94-a and have, by majority vote at a previous town meeting, decided to elect officers on the second Tuesday in May."  RSA 669:1. Parallel provisions in RSA 670:1 and RSA 671:2 specify the election dates for Village District and School District elections.  New Hampshire law does not contain a provision that authorizes any public official to postpone an election.  RSA 40:4 authorizes the Moderator in the event of a weather emergency, under the conditions described in the statute, to postpone the business meeting of the traditional form of town meeting or the deliberative session for a jurisdiction that has adopted the use of Official Ballot voting under RSA 40:13.  This provision in the Chapter of law addressing government of town meeting does not authorize postponement of an election.
