The Census Deadline is September 30, 2020

An accurate census is vital to our democracy. In addition to determining representation in the House of Representatives, the census results are used to inform funding for services, and provide data that the city and businesses use to determine where to invest. Therefore, if you have not responded to the 2020 Census, please do.

The new deadline is September 30, 2020, a month earlier than originally allowed. So, don’t wait to respond.

In addition, Census is still looking for temporary part-time help completing the census. Check out the FAQ if you have questions about these positions.
