The layer is stored in ArcSDE and distributed as REGDEEDS_POLY.
This layer was created by MassGIS from the Towns layer. Each town was assigned a REGDIST code, which corresponds to the Registry of Deeds to which the town belongs. Then towns boundaries with the same Registry were dissolved to create the 21 districts. All unnecessary fields were deleted and several fields subjective to the Registries were added.
The datalayer's polygon attribute table has the following items:
Full name of district REGDIST
Abbreviation of full DISTRICT name REGISTER
Name of Register ADDRESS
Street address of Registry
Municipality in which the Registry is located
ZIP Code of address TYPE
Identifies whether Registry is administered by the Secretary of State ("S") or the County ("C")
URL of Registry Web site
MassGIS maintains this datalayer. Updates will be made after election results are complete in 2006 and every six years thereafter, unless an unexpected vacancy is filled.
