How do you plan on filling out the 2020 Census? By mail, phone, or online? This is the first year ever that the decennial census can be filled out online in...drum-roll...less than 10 minutes! Since only one person should be filling out the census per each household our team came up with three ways to make sure everyone in your household gets counted on April 1st!
1. Census Celebration
Name a better excuse to have a party with your roommates than filling out the Census. Since all roommates need to be counted together, grab some snacks, beverages of your choice and fill it out together.
2. Family Game Night
This is an awesome opportunity to fill out the census with the entire family! It's also an opportunity to educate kids early about what the census is and why it is important. The Census Bureau has created a variety of fun coloring pages, and other activities to help kids learn about the Census. You can download them here!
3. Reach out to your community
The census affects everyone and everything! Get creative and organize different ways for you and the community to not only raise awareness of the Census, but also fill it out together. The census has partnered with the American Library Association and local libraries have been given the resources to help the community fill out the census securely on public computers.
Ultimately it is up to us to shape our future with the 2020 census and there is no time to wait! Whether you respond online, by phone, mail or in-person each person counts and can change the Pullman community’s future for the next ten years.
