2022 Annual Census Information

The 2022 annual town census is underway in Adams.  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. This year census forms have been mailed to all residents.  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.  There is a drop box in front of Town Hall for your convenience.  Households with dependent children who are not listed on the census form should add their children and complete the information that pertains to each child.  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 Secretary of the Commonwealth’s website.  Failure to respond 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, Monday, Tuesday & Thursday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Wednesday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Friday 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM.
