Norfolk Town Clerk Carol Greene reminds residents that they should have received the town census in mid-January. Make any changes, sign and return it or risk being added to the Inactive Voter list. This year is also a Federal census year, but the Federal Government does not share census data so you must fill out the town census, also.
Since this is an election year, Greene advises residents to check their voter registration status online at the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s office, or contact her office. Voter registration must be updated each time you move.
Dog licenses must be renewed at the beginning of each year. Dog licenses can be renewed in person at the Town Clerk’s office during regular business hours, through the mail, or online on the Town Clerk’s website. Late fees start May 1. Visit the Town Clerk’s page at for more information.
