June 2, 2020-Last Day to Change Party Affiliation prior to State Primary Election
Tuesday, June 2, 2020 is the last day a registered voter can change their party affiliation before the September 8, 2020, State Primary Election.
Governor Sununu recently issued Emergency Order #43, waiving the requirement that a voter wanting to change his/her party affiliation must appear in person and make an oath to the clerk. This order establishes a new paper form for changing parties. Please click here for the form which must be completed and returned through the mail or dropped off in the dropbox located behind city hall by June 2, 2020. The City Clerk’s Office will be opened on June 2, 2020, between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. to accommodate those voters wishing to change their party affiliation in person. If voters do not change their party affiliation by this deadline, they will not be able to change it until Wednesday, September 9, 2020.
If you are not sure on your party affiliation, you may visit the City Clerk’s Office to view the posted checklist or visit the State of New Hampshire Voter Information Look-up website at http://app.sos.nh.gov.
Registering to Vote - In Person
Nashua residents may contact the City Clerk's Office at 589-3010, option 5, to make an appointment to register to vote in person.
Registering to Vote - Absentee
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.
While you may request an absentee ballot at any time, absentee ballots will not likely be available until mid to late summer. 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.
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.
Please note you must be a resident of Nashua to register with the Nashua City Clerk’s Office
