The Cambridge Election Commission has mailed the 2013 Annual City Census Form to all Cambridge households. Residents are urged to comply by completing the Census Form and returning it in the postage prepaid envelope that was provided.

The city is required to conduct the Annual Census under Massachusetts state law and 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 may be removed from the Voter Registration rolls.

The census mailing includes the Census Form, Census Instructions in five languages, a Voter Registration Request Form and a form for those interested in working at the polls on Election Day.

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.
