Annual census forms were mailed to Winchester residents on January 2, 2017. All households must respond to the mailing to keep their voting status active. With the upcoming Annual Town Election on March 28, 2107 the Town Clerk’s Office is requesting that you submit your census form today. State law requires that every community conduct a census during the month of January and if we do not hear from you state law mandates that all unanswered census households will be made inactive effective May 31, 2017.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 providing information for the selection of jurors.Note: The census form doesn’t register you to vote. If you are interested to register to vote you may now go to https://www.sec.state.ma.us/ovr/ 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. We will inform you of your polling location.
The Town Clerk’s Office is asking for your help to keep our voter lists as accurate as possible by returning the yellow census form today. If you have lost your mailing please contact us by phone or email to let us know you are still living in Winchester, 781-721-7130 or firstname.lastname@example.org Even if you are NOT a registered voter you must return your census each year.
