Have you filled out your 2020 Census yet? If you haven't don't worry ~ there is still time!
Why fill it out?
~ It's the law
Completing the Census is in our Constitution! Article 1, Section 2 mandates that the country count it's population every 10 years.
~ It's funding
Census results affect planning & funding for highways, first responders, health and education programs. Billions of dollars are distributed to states and communities based on the results of the Census!
~ It's your voice
State Congressional Representative numbers are determined based on Census numbers.
Can I still respond to the 2020 Census?
~ YES! Originally Census takers were going to go door-to-door through AUGUST 14th to try to ensure everyone would be counted. With the Coronavirus these plans may have to change but that means that everyone STILL HAS TIME to get their household Census completed for 2020!
At the time of this blog, Texas is currently at 47% while the US is at 51.6%. Come on Texas, we can do better than that!
Go to www.census.gov to learn more about the Census and submit your response! Our communities need everyone to participate! Complete your 2020 Census today!
