Annual City Census
Annual Census Forms for 2015 have been mailed.

Please return your Annual Census Form at your earliest convenience.  Massachusetts Law requires an annual street listing of residents as of January 1st each year (M.G.L. Ch. 51 § 4).  

Responding to the Annual Census keeps your voting status active.  Even if you are not a registered voter, responding to the census will ensure that the City Clerk’s Office can provide you with proof of residency.  Responding to the Census does not register you to vote. 

An accurate count of residents in Newton assists in providing better municipal services.  

Please mail your form to the Election Commission using the envelope included with the form or hand deliver your form to the City Clerk’s Office at Newton City Hall.

If you did not receive a form, you can download a form by clicking on the link below and dropping it off at the City Clerk’s office or mail it to:
