The title compound, C12H12N4O2+·2NO3-, crystallizes as 1-(4-pyridinio)-2'-[4-pyridinio-(E)-methyl­idene]­hydrazide cations and nitrate anions. An extensive hydrogen-bonding network, primarily N-H...O interactions, but with supporting C-H...O contacts, leads to a three-dimensional matrix structure, which is best considered as a cationic framework with bridging nitrate anions. The basic feature of the cationic framework is a zigzag chain, which runs along the [101] direction. The chains pack to generate two-dimensional sheets which lie parallel to the (101) plane and stack in the [\overline 101] direction to give the three-dimensional matrix.
