The information provided by the Town Census is not only statistically important, but is the basis for updating the annual Voter List. The information obtained from the census is used to prepare the street list, jurors' list, school list and provides proof of residence for veterans' benefits, senior citizens programs and other benefits. Filling out this form does not register you to vote. Distribution of the Census and compilation of the information provided therein is required by Massachusetts State Law. Census information about children under 17 is not made available to the public.
Census forms are mailed to each household in Fairhaven around January 1st each year. Please check your mail in January to be sure that you receive your form. Call the Town Clerk's Office at (508) 979-4025, if you have any questions about the Town Census.
