Running Out of Time to Complete the Census

We’re almost out of time for everyone in our community to be counted for the US census. Getting a complete count is extremely important and will affect real things in your community. Decision-makers look at the census when thinking about funding for schools, libraries, and all public services! And you can even complete it online.

The census is safe to complete. Identifying information is locked and cannot be accessed by other parts of the government for 72 years. The possible harm is far outweighed by the benefits of completing the census right now.

If you have not completed the census for your household, please act right now! The window to be counted may close as early as October 5.
