The 2020 Census is Coming
Last night, I attended a meeting of the 2020 Census Complete Count Committee upon which I serve. As we move forward with this year’s count, let me emphasize that the Census is both bipartisan and nonpartisan. Every community has an interest in making sure that every single person is counted.
It matters because an undercount can lead to less congressional representation for your home state, fewer federal resources in return for the tax dollars you pay and a less efficient government. The US Census is Constitutionally mandated, vital for an understanding of each community’s needs and an important resource for those both in and outside government, including certain businesses, educators and academics.
You’ll be able to fill out your Census form online this year in less than 5 minutes or complete it by mail or phone if you choose. Learn more here.
