Dear fellow Hanoverians:

The annual town census has been mailed to all Hanover households. Again
this year – if you do not have any changes to your town census, you may
submit your response on-line! All residents should review the information
on the form, make any changes if necessary, and sign and return the form by
February 15, 2022.

If there are no changes to your town census, go to:
and fill out the on-line form. Household members who are temporarily
living away from home, such as college students, members of the military
services, etc., should not be removed from the census if they plan to use
Hanover as their voting address.

Also included in the census mailing are a Hanover School Information Sheet
and a Dog License Application. If applicable to your household, these forms
should also be completed and may all be returned via snail mail in the
enclosed addressed envelope or dropped through the front door mail slot of
the Hanover Town Hall. All children should be listed on both the annual
census and the school census forms.

If you did not receive a town census form or are new to the Town of
Hanover, you can download a blank one on-line here:

Completion of the annual census is important for a number of reasons.
1. It assists the police and fire departments in case of any emergency in
your home.
2. It allows Hanover to receive the proper allocation of state and federal
funds and grants.
3. Filing a census can provide you with proof of residency for a number of
legal requirements such as in-state tuition at state colleges, housing
benefits, veterans’ benefits, and insurance benefits.
4. Any registered voters in a household that fail to complete an annual
census will lose their “active voter” status, which will result in you
experiencing unnecessary delays at the polls.

Please be sure your family phone number is on the census form. Your phone
number will only be used for internal purposes and not shared or sold.
