Election

We direct all municipal, state, and federal elections within Boston. We also register voters, conduct an annual listing of Boston residents, and educate the public on the importance of voting.

Our department ensures that elections are properly managed and conducted in accordance with City, state, and federal laws.

COMPLETE OUR ANNUAL CENSUS

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:
