Census Time is Here
Citizens will soon receive a letter in the mail from the U.S. Census requesting that they fill out the 2020 Census online or by phone. The letters should be arriving in mailboxes later this week. The majority of residences should be expecting information around late March. Each letter will have a census ID number that is designated for that residence.
Everyone needs to fill out the census and be counted. Accurate population count drives numbers and the federal money and subsequently how that money comes back to our community.
For the 2020 Census, people are encouraged to use the ID in the letter to complete the form online at my2020census.gov or by phone.
Other mailings will be sent to residences that have not filled out the census. If it still isn’t done by April, households will get another notification along with a paper copy of the census to complete.
Filling out the census is crucial to the area, and local committees have been working to make sure everyone knows of that importance.
No one will come to a person’s door about the census at this time as census takers will not go out into the field until May.
No legitimate census letter or census worker will ask for money. They will not ask for any kind of information to access a resident’s money, like bank accounts are credit/debit card information. No one should share that kind of information with anyone they don’t know. Citizens should know that there is absolutely no cost for participation in the census.
