The City of Everett reminds residents that the 2019 Census will be arriving by mail in the next few days to all homes in the city.
We urge all families and/or head of households to complete the census, which can be mailed back or dropped at City Hall in the Census Box at the Greeting Desk or in the Election Commission Office, Room 10.
It is imperative that all residents, including children, be accounted for. Federal and state grants to Everett are based on accurate population statistics. By responding to the local census, resident help their community receive grant money when it is awarded based on data collected from the census.
Although the names of school age children under the age of 16 are not published or available for unauthorized access, educational managers at the state and local level critically need this information for long-term strategic planning purposes.
Failure to respond to the Census for 2 consecutive years shall result in the removal from the active voting list and may result in removal from the voter registration rolls.
Another benefit of responding to the 2019 Census is the Everett Street Listing Directory. The City Clerk is the archivist of these annual listings and possesses volumes of hard copies going back to the early 19th century. Accurate information is made possible because a household member actually took the time 100 years ago to fill out their annual census.
The City Census is also the most accurate way to prove residency which is needed for Veterans Bonus Applications as well as other important documents which may not be needed for years to come.
Please feel free to contact the Election Commission at 617-394-2296 or 2297 with any questions.
