2019 Annual Town Census

The blue Annual Street List form has been mailed to you! The state requires towns to contact every resident to update the street list and confirm every voter.  Children, non-voters and non-voters, everyone and anyone in your household should be listed on the form correctly.  Please add any missing information.  If there is more than one household at your address, please request additional forms.

If a voter has moved away, please write down an address so I can get a signature to remove them from the town voter rolls.
