The Town of Avon sends out an annual census in January of each year. Your response to the Annual Census is important. The census data is used by the school department to verify residency and project class sizes. Our public safety departments use this information when providing critical services to the residents. Also many state and federal government agencies depend upon this data in determining funding for our schools, roads, and eligibility for important grants, all which affects our local tax rate.
According to state law, failure to respond to the mailing shall result in removal from the active voting list and may result in removal from the voter registration rolls, so please return your census! Each form is bar-coded so that it can be scanned into the statewide network. However, if you are new to town or have misplaced yours, you may also access a blank form here.
You cannot register to vote on your census, however if you are a registered voter and do not answer the census, every voter in your family will be made an inactive voter and will not be allowed to vote until they visit the clerks office to fill out necessary paperwork. You can register to vote by mail or in person at any Town hall in Massachusetts. You can also register to vote at the Registry of Motor Vehicles.
The Annual Street List of Residents is published in late spring, and is available in the Town Clerk’s office for a fee of $10.00 for residents and $15.00 for non-residents.
