Be Counted

Lowell Keep an eye on your mailbox . . . the city census forms are on their way.

It is important for each resident of the city to be counted. The census provides the only legal record for city residence and is used for veteran’s benefits, proof of residence, public school enrollment, senior citizen benefits, and updating voter records.

It is also an important tool used in planning and budgeting for city programs and services. The population figure is also used by state and federal agencies to allocate funds and services.

Conducting an annual census is required by state law. Those who do not return their census forms may be removed from the active voter list.

Instructions and a return envelope are provided with the census form.  You may return your completed census form via mail or visiting the Lowell Election Commission/Census office at City Hall, 375 Merrimack Street, Room 5.

Please respond to the census within 10 days of receiving your form.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Election Commission at 978-674-1200.  Normal office hours are weekdays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
