New Hampshire’s FLUORIDATION LAW:

  • The State of New Hampshire does not mandate fluoridation.  Local governments control fluoridation policy in NH.  Municipalities can begin or discontinue fluoridation only by collecting petition signatures from 10% of registered voters within the communities served by the fluoridating water company.  If the petition is valid, a referendum vote on fluoridation must be held and the majority opinion honored for at least two years before the fluoridation question can be placed on ballot again.
