Elections

Elections

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. We seek to get all eligible citizens registered to vote, and maintain the integrity of our voting records by conducting an annual census in Boston. The information compiled in the listing process also provides the basis for the jury list submitted to the state courts each year.
