Press Release: 2023 NOTICE of 2nd Mailing ANNUAL TOWN CENSUS
The Town Clerk’s Office has mailed a second request to all households who have not yet responded to the Annual Census. In order to remain active on the voter list you must return your census. You will be made inactive on May 31,2023 according to Massachusetts General Law, if we don’t hear from you with this second mailing. As we prepare for the 2024 Electoral season remaining active on the voter list will allow for you to check in on Election Day with ease. Help us help you please!
We have enclosed a return envelope and you may drop it in the drop boxes at the front and rear of the Winchester Town Hall or mail back to the Town Clerk’s Office.
In accordance with State Law, the census is conducted annually in every city and town in Massachusetts. The information gathered is used to maintain a current voting list and to provide population and other information to various town departments. Compliance with this State requirement provides proof of residence, protects voting rights, veteran’s bonus, housing for the elderly and related benefits as well as provides information for the selection of jurors. Should you be concerned about address confidentiality you may contact the Secretary of the Commonwealth at https://www.sec.state.ma.us/acp/acpabtidx.htm to learn if you qualify for this program.
Note: The census form doesn’t register you to vote. If you are interested to register to vote you may now go to http://www.registertovotema.com and register to vote online. This opportunity is fast and convenient. The Town Clerk’s Office will send you a registration confirmation letter in the mail to confirm that your online application was accurately received and processed.
