Adams: Town census is underway
The 2019 annual town census has been mailed to all residents. The census is mandated by the Massachusetts General Law and it is important to have the correct residential count to apply for state aid, as well as grants.
Residents are asked to review the form, make any necessary changes, sign, and return it to the town clerk's office in the envelope provided, even if there are no changes. A drop-off box is located in Town Hall.
Information regarding the children is not public record and is used only by the schools for enrollment purposes.
Residents cannot register to vote or change party enrollment on the annual town census. Any resident who is not registered to vote may register by mailing a voter registration form or visiting the town clerk's office. Failure to respond to the census may result in removal from the active voters list.
Anyone who does not receive their census form or wishes to provide the information on the phone, should call the town clerk's office at 413-743-8300, ext. 176, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
