Federal Census 2020
Based on the 2020 Federal Census, Wenham will be split between two State Representatives, the 6th Essex District (with Beverly) and the 13th Essex District (with Danvers and parts of Topsfield, Middleton, and Peabody). Because of our population, the Select Board has an opportunity to stay one precinct with sub precincts, or move into two precincts. Please click the links to view the presentation that was presented to the Select Board on Wednesday, December 1st. We are looking for public input in order to make a final decision the week of December 6th. If you have any questions regarding this information, please do not hesitate to reach out to Town Clerk Trudy Reid.
