Additional Voter & Election Information

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.
