DENVILLE, NJ -- The League of Women Voters is joining with the Census Bureau to promote a “Census Push Week,” from July 27 to August 2 via socially distanced, masked activities. Census partners can table at outdoor community events, establish a Census kiosk (e.g., at food distribution locations, COVID-19 testing locations, places of worship, libraries, etc.), distribute Census flyers and/or organize a car caravan or chalk-a-thon in hard-to-count communities. Virtual options include hosting a virtual block party, reaching out to personal contacts to ensure they have completed the Census, and engaging Census Bureau Mobile Questionnaire Assistants, who can help people at community events.
Anyone who wishes to partner with the League of Women Voters on Census events can contact the League of Women Voters of the Morristown Area at lwvmorrisarea.org.
The Census is conducted once every 10 years (as required by the U.S. Constitution) and impacts a state’s federal funding, political representation and economic development.
The Census can be completed easily in just a few minutes by phone toll free (1-844-468-2020), online (my2020census.gov) or by mail. Responses to the Census are secure, protected by federal law and cannot be shared with law enforcement agencies.
If households do not complete the Census by August 11, Census enumerators will begin visiting homes in-person.
