The last day to register to vote before the Municipal General Election will be Saturday, October 28, 2017. Our office will be opened this day from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.  If you are a new voter to Nashua, if you moved from another municipality within the State or moved within Nashua, if you changed your name or wish to change your party affiliation, please come down to our office to register or re-register before the deadline. 

The City Clerk's Office is opened Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.- 5 p.m., excluding holidays.  


Registering to Vote - In Person


  • In Nashua, residents may register at the City Clerk's Office, 229 Main Street, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., excluding holidays.   
  • If you are registering to vote and its not within 30 days of an election you will need to bring with you proof of your domicile in Nashua.  State Law now requires that "an applicant shall demonstrate an intent to make a place his or her domicile by providing documentation showing that the applicant has a domicile at the address provided on the voter registration form."  Such documentation may include item(s) listed on the Verifiable Action of Domicile.  If a voter comes in and does not have this information with them, they will not be able to register to voter at that time.  To help expedite the other processes for voter registration, we encourage voters to bring in a government issued photo id and if born outside of the United States, you will be asked to prove your US Citizenship.  If you do not have evidence of age, identity or citizenship, you will be required to sign a Qualified Voter Affidavit.  Please contact the City Clerk's Office, at 603-589-3010, if you have any questions about the type of documentation required to register to vote. 
  • If you are registering to vote within 30 days of an election or on election day State Law still requires that "an applicant shall demonstrate an intent to make a place his or her domicile by providing documentation showing that the applicant has a domicile at the address provided on the voter registration form."  If a voter comes in and does not have this information with them, they will be able to register to voter at that time, but will need to complete an affidavit, on the voter registration form, as to whether they have documentation and will return to the City Clerk's Office withing ten (10) days after the election, with said documentation, or they will need to acknowledge they are aware they have no documentary evidence of action carrying out their intent to be domiciled at that address. If voters state they will return within the ten (10) ten days with their documentation, they will also be given a Verifiable Action of Domicile form to complete and return with said documentation. To help expedite the other processes for voter registration, we encourage voters to bring in a government issued photo id and if born outside of the United States, you will be asked to prove your US Citizenship.  If you do not have evidence of age, identity or citizenship, you will be required to initial and sign, on the back of the voter registration form, the items applicable to your situation. Please contact the City Clerk's Office, at 603-589-3010, if you have any questions about the type of documentation required to register to vote.  
  • Should you not be able to come into our office, you can register to vote on election day at the polls. Registering on election day and then voting will require you to wait in two lines: one to register and one to vote. You will save time by registering earlier.
