Annual City Census Mailed to Cambridge Households
The Cambridge Election Commission has mailed the 2011 Annual City Census Form to all Cambridge households. Residents are urged to comply by completing the Census Form and returning it in the postage-paid envelope that was provided.
The city is required to conduct the Annual Census under Massachusetts state law. The census provides residents with their only official proof of city residency. All residents, regardless of citizenship and voter registration status, are required to answer the Census. State law requires that voters who do not answer the Census shall be removed from the Active Voting List and placed on the Inactive Voter List and may result in removal from the Voter Registration Rolls.
The census mailing includes instructions in five languages, the Census Form and a Voter Registration Request Form.
If you have any questions, you may call the Election Commission at 617-349-4361 during city office hours: Monday, 8:30 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.; Tuesday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m..; and Friday, 8:30 – Noon.
