No fooling, the national census, the Constitutionally mandated every 10 years count of every person n the United States, kicked off April 1st. Because we all count, it is critical that we all get counted. Federal funds for our communities and our state, and districting boundaries for state and national legislative seats are shaped by census results. If folks are missed, don’t get counted, everyone loses.

Door-to-door canvassing is limited by the COVID-19 virus pandemic. Your patriotic duty is to complete the census, for your good and the support of your neighbors and your community.

Spread the word and get everyone you know counted, so they count.

Complete the census with a phone call, toll free, 844-330-2020, or via 2020census.gov.
