Absentee Voter Registration and Voting Absentee

Due to the current state of emergency, the Secretary of State and Attorney General have determined that all citizens of New Hampshire are entitled to use the disability provisions in New Hampshire’s voter registration and absentee voting laws to register to vote and vote by absentee ballot (by mail).  

Absentee Ballot applications for the upcoming 2020 elections can be printed here  and completed in the convenience of your home.   You may mail, e-mail, fax, or hand deliver your completed application to the Office of the City Clerk.  If you are not yet registered to vote, we will include the voter registration form, absentee registration affidavit, and instructions when we mail your absentee ballot.   

You may also request absentee voter registration forms and instructions before requesting an absentee ballot.  Please note you must be a resident of Nashua to register with the Nashua City Clerk’s Office.

When you complete either the absentee ballot application or the absentee voter registration affidavit, if you are doing so because of the current COVID-19 health emergency, mark the disability section as the basis for your eligibility to register/vote by mail.

More information may be found online by visiting the Secretary of State’s Office’s website:  Voting During the COVID-19 State of Emergency link.
