Town 2022 Annual Street Listing ‘census’ form in mail, needs to be returned promptly.
Town Hall posts: “It is important that all residents return them to the Town Clerk’s office promptly. Failure to respond to the census will result in removal from the active voting list and will ultimately result in removal from the voter registration rolls. The Williamstown 2022 Annual Street Listing will be mailed to all Williamstown residents in the coming week (posted 1.14.22). The census is a requirement of the Massachusetts General Law.
Residents should not use the census form for the purpose of voter registration. Any resident who is not registered to vote may register by going to the Secretary of State’s website: https://www.sec.state.ma.us/OVR/ or by mailing a voter registration form to the Town Clerk’s office. Voter registration forms can be found on the Secretary of State’s website as well: https://www.sec.state.ma.us/ele/elepdf/Voter-reg-mail-in.pdf.
Parents of college students or members of the military who are registered voters in Williamstown should be aware that by deleting those children from their census form will remove them from the active voters list. Also, households that have dependent children in them, but are not listed on your census form should add their children to the form and complete the information that pertains to each child. Information regarding the children is not a public record and is used only by the schools for enrollment purposes.
All forms should either be mailed back in the enclosed return envelope or dropped off in the Town’s drop box, located outside the front door of Town Hall. The drop box is to be used for all Town business. Anyone who does not receive their census form in the mail within the next three weeks or who has questions pertaining to the form should call Town Clerk, Nicole E. Pedercini Beverly at 458-3500 Ext. 101″
