Town of Cohasset Census

In the coming weeks, the 2022 Annual Town Census will be mailed to all households in Cohasset.

Why is it important for you to fill out your census and mail it back? Local Communities like Cohasset use census data to determine who we are and who we are becoming.  Using this data helps meet the needs of all segments of our population. No other source of data can provide the information that is so vital to accurate budgetary and programmatic planning.  

It is important to know that if a voter does not return the census, that voter will be placed on the “inactive” voter list. If you are an inactive voter, it will be indicated on the list of voters when you check-in at your polling place. Before you may vote, you will be required to complete an affirmation of current and continuous residence. You will also be asked to present identification which shows your name and the address at which you are registered to vote. 

Please take the time to promptly fill out the census form and return it to the Town Clerk’s office. 

It is important to note that you CANNOT use the census to register to vote, change a voter’s address, or change a voter’s political party. If you would like to register to vote or change your polit
