City Election Department Visiting Neighborhoods

Dear Community Members:

Please be advised that the Boston Election Department’s team of annual listing (City Census) officers will be visiting each neighborhood throughout the next few weeks to update the annual listing of residents.  Every City and Town in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is mandated by law to conduct an annual listing.  Information obtained during the listing process is forwarded to the Office of the Jury Commissioner for use in compiling jury pools, and is also used as an indicator of the population changes in the City.  The information gathered also helps to ensure the accuracy and the integrity of the voting list.  The Listing Officers will go door-to-door in neighborhoods, and are easily identified by their City-issued photo-IDs and bright orange vests.
