Census Day is Here and we want to MAKE IT COUNT!
Today, the Census Bureau is strongly encouraging the public to respond to the 2020 Census online using a desktop computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet. You can respond online or by phone in English or 12 other languages.
On April 1, 2020, Census Day is observed nationwide. By today, most homes should have received an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census.
Why is Census Day important?
When completing the 2020 Census, record where you’re living—and who is living in your home—as of April 1, 2020. Designating Census Day as one reference date for the count helps ensure that everyone is counted just once, even if they are moving or live in multiple homes.
You can respond for your home in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail. Respond at 2020CENSUS.GOV or call one of the toll-free numbers listed on your invitation.

Is your community responding to the 2020 Census?
The 2020 Census is more than a population count; it’s an opportunity to shape the future of our community. The Census Bureau is challenging everyone to help ensure a complete and accurate count in 2020. Visit the 2020 Census response rate map to see how cities and towns across the country—including yours—are responding compared to our community.
So, while you are keeping tabs on local response rates, encourage others to respond to the 2020 Census. Through your social media channels, you can tell everyone that you will complete the 2020 Census and why it’s important that they respond too.
