Absentee Voter Registration and Voter 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.

- City of Nashua Voter Checklists (1885 - 1893) (PDF)
The conservation of the City’s oldest voter checklists was made possible through funds received from the sale of the New Hampshire Moose Conservation License Plate and administered by the New Hampshire State Library, a Division of the New Hampshire Department of Cultural Resources. The original manuscripts are maintained by the Nashua City Clerk. Microfilm and digitized copies of these checklists have been provided to the Nashua Public Library, New Hampshire State Library, and New Hampshire Division of Archives and Records Management. These checklists pre-date the adoption of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution (1920) which gave women the right to vote, nationally, and the 1915 City Charter provision which gave women the right to vote in elections for the Board of Education.
