ASK ALEXA:  The State of NH Secretary of State's Office has partnered with Amazon Web Services to create a State of NH Elections Alexa application.  Now, anyone with an Alexa-enabled device is able to ask Alexa about New Hampshire elections information.

Using the Alexa application for State of NH Elections:

To access the feature, you need to "install" the skill on your Alexa-enabled device.  Simply say "Alexa, enable State of New Hampshire Elections."  Once you've done this, you are ready to ask questions of the app.  A good place to start is to say:  "Alexa, ask State of New Hampshire Elections to take me on a tour."    Other examples of requests include:  "Alexa, ask State of New Hampshire Elections where is my polling place".   "Alexa, ask State of New Hampshire Elections to tell me about overseas voters."
