How to Participate in New Hampshire Legislative Hearings

New Hampshire citizens can upload written testimony on bills without appearing in person, specific to the House of Representatives. Legislators check this submissions page frequently to review testimony that has been submitted on bills coming before their committee. Testimony submitted online is available for anyone to view. The form accepts testimony through the end of the day of each bill’s public hearing.  
For NH Senate bills, a copy of your written testimony must still be emailed to the committees, using the links provided further on in this page (see “Participation Methods for the 2023 Legislative Session”).  
A link to sign in and register a position, FOR THE NH HOUSE ONLY and to submit a PDF of written testimony, can be found here:
