New Hampshire Division of Motor Vehicles changes its policy - Thanks to a collaborative effort between GLAD (www.glad.org), Transgender New Hampshire (TGNH) http://www.tg-nh.org/, NHCLU, NH PFLAG, and NH Representative Ed Butler’s amazing leadership and efforts, the NH DMV has finally amended the DMV policy and removed the surgery requirement. In New Hampshire you no longer need surgery to change your gender marker on your NH license or non-license legal ID. This is a huge step forward for people who are transgender in our state.
The new Change of Gender Designation Form can be found using this link: http://www.nh.gov/safety/divisions/dmv/forms/documents/dsmv626.pdf. For more information go to GLAD’s toolkit instead of the DMV website, which is here: http://www.glad.org/rights/toolkit/new-hampshire-driver-license-non-driver-identification-card-tool-kit. This toolkit has additional information on how to change your name, and how to contact GLAD if anyone is wrongly denied or treated disrespectfully at the DMV.
