Census Information

Annual Town Census Information

The Annual Town Census is sent out every January in accordance with Massachusetts General Laws. The census is a valuable tool for our Town. It provides statistical information to the State resulting in State funding for our Town. Compliance with this state requirement provides proof of residence to protect voting rights, veterans’ bonus, housing for the elderly and related benefits, as well as providing information for selection of jurors. Completing this form does not register you as a voter, but failure to answer this annual listing shall result in a voter’s name being removed from the active voters list and may result in removal from the voter registration rolls. Answering your Census will help us maintain an accurate voter list. If you are new to Town, please visit our office to complete a census form or download the blank census form below, and return it to our office. Please be reminded if you move within the Town of Somerset, our office must be contacted to make the correct address changes for your family.
