Today, Barnstable Town Clerk Ann Quirk conducted a mass inactivation of 7,894 voters. Each year the Municipal Census is conducted in accordance with Massachusetts General Laws in every city and town in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. By responding to the Census, the Town Clerk’s office is able to keep voter history and voting addresses up to date. However, voters are made “inactive” if their annual census is not received or if they have moved and have not notified the municipality. Residents of the Town of Barnstable are encouraged to take a moment to call the Town Clerk’s Office at 508-862-4044 to verify their voter status.
