As the Census Bureau takes its 2020 count, the questionnaire has never been easier to complete —online, over the phone or by mail — all without having to meet a census taker. The information you provide will impact your community every day — from influencing highway planning to determining how money is allocated to public school programs. Hospitals, fire and police departments, schools, and other local entities all depend on census data for funding. www.my2020census.gov. Simply go to the website, click the “start questionnaire” button on the right side of the screen and answer the questions. It should take no more than 10 minutes. Let's make sure we have a hand in shaping the future of our state. Your response matters.
