Annual City Census by Mail

An annual city census mailer is sent to every household. You must respond if you are a resident of Everett whether you are a voter or not. Every person should be listed, including all children and non- U.S. citizens. This is a very important function to the city in regards to state funding as well as keeping your name listed as active on the voting lists.

Please check over the information provided on the form making any necessary changes and mail back to this office as soon as possible.

New Feature starting in 2023
Starting in 2023 a Vote by Mail application and Dog License application will also be included with your census form for your convenience.

New Occupants
If you are a new occupant of a residence, use the form addressed to your address and update it with your information, as you are the current resident. Please be aware that this office protects your rights by never giving out any telephone numbers, so please include your phone number on the form in case we have any questions about your household.

Missing Form
If you have not received a census form, by February 1st, contact the Election Commission at either 617-394-2296 or 617-394-2297 to have one mailed out to you.
