Judicial Selection


2020 Census

It's critically important that each household in our two towns fill out the 2020 U.S. census form either online or by mail.

Data from the forms will determine how much funding the towns of Hamilton and Wenham will receive for important public services, and also how many seats the state of Massachusetts is allowed in Congress. State census counts will also be used to determine congressional, state legislative and local school districts. 

All data collected is confidential.
