Community Notice: Census Error

By contributor,

Residents of Hopkinton,

As many of you are aware, this is the time of year when the census is mailed to every household to better track our annual population and to maintain our voter lists. However, there was an error with the census forms that have been mailed by the Town's vendor this year. They added a column for "gender" with data from the "mail to" column, making it appear as a "Y" or an "N." Please disregard this column, we do not collect gender information and we will simply use that as an extension of the "mail to" column. I apologize for any confusion this may cause and will ensure this does not happen again.
