Our department directs all municipal, state, and federal elections within Boston. As part of our work, we also register voters, conduct an annual census, and educate the public on voting.

COVID-19 update: Our office is open, but with reduced staff. In-person meetings are for critical needs only. Please use our online appointment application. For questions, please call 617-635-8683, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. (hours subject to change), or email election@boston.gov. For details on nomination papers, review our COVID-19 update page.


We maintain the integrity of our voting records by conducting an annual census in Boston. The information also provides the basis for the jury list given to the state courts each year. You can fill out the census online:
