Town Clerk

Our office handles vehicle registrations, vital records, dog licenses, NH wetlands permits, voter registration, obtaining recycling center /pond decals, Transfer Station bags, stickers or punch cards, marriage licenses, certified copies of births, deaths and marriages, genealogy searches (limited) and information about Lyme and Lyme Center in general.

Because the Lyme Town Clerk's Office is an agent for the State of New Hampshire Department of Motor Vehicles, you may complete both parts of the registration and get all plate types processed except IRP, Commercial, Veteran, and POW plates here.

Vehicles weighing over 22,000 pounds will require a trip to Concord or the closest MV substation that processes registrations (currently Newport). Always come to the Town Clerk’s office before going to a substation. The Lyme TC office is connected directly to the State and some transactions may require a wait longer than usual. We do our best to process your transactions as quickly as possible, but in the event yours is a stubborn one, we will appreciate your patience. Various documents are necessary when registering a new vehicle. Please call the office to verify what your specific transaction will require. 795-2535. The Clerk’s office follows the schedule of office closings used by the State.  Generally, these closings will be posted on the website and on Lyme Listserv.

We welcome your calls and/or visits. Don't hesitate to contact us if we may be of help.
