Notary Services

The Election Department provides Notary services as needed between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.  Residents seeking Notary services are requested to call the Election Department prior to their visit to review the requirements.

Campaign Finance Reporting

Candidates and committees in city elections usually file three campaign finance reports in an election cycle: one before a Preliminary Election, a second before the general election and a third on January 20 of the following year.  If there is no Preliminary Election in the city, only two reports are required: one is due eight days before the November Election and the second is due on January 20 of the following year. 

The report for the Office of Mayor is filed online through the Office of Campaign and Political Finance.  The reports for all other Offices on the ballot are filed with the Election Department. 

Campaign Finance reports are maintained on the cities website for six years from the date of the relevant Election.

View the candidates previously filed Campaign Finance reports.

Additional information is available by visiting the website of the
Office of Campaign and Political Finance (OCPF).

Census Information

During the first week of January each year, the Election Department sends a census form to each residence in the city.  We request that you update your household information upon receipt and send it back to our office as soon as possible.  If you are new to the city or have not filled out your census for the current year, contact the Election Department and one will be sent to you to complete and return.

In May of each year, we send confirmation cards to all voters who have not replied, requesting that they attest to and/or update their census information.  Voters that do not return the confirmation card before August 1 are required to complete an Affirmation of Current and Continuous Residence and provide identification on Election Day.  

The Federal Census is different from the Annual City Census.  The Federal Census is sent every ten years to every residence in the City of Revere.  Each response received is worth $2,300.00 to the City in Federal funding and Congressional representation.

If you have any questions call the Election Department at 781-286-8200.
