Have You Taken The Census Yet?
[Updated as of September 24th, 2020: The deadline for the census has been extended to October 31st.]
The census only comes once every 10 years. Results from this nationwide survey determine funding for community services like schools, health clinics, fire departments, roads, and highways. Don’t miss out on being counted. It can make a difference in your community! You can take the census online, by phone, or by mail, whatever works for you.
