2020 Census Information - it's urgent to be counted

Now more than ever it is urgent to be counted. Take part online at my2020census.gov, or by calling 1-800-330-2020, or by mail.

A message from a member of congress:

Dear Friend, 

As local, state and federal governments distribute resources to help communities recover from the coronavirus pandemic, it underscores the importance of an accurate and comprehensive 2020 Census. It’s Quick and Easy! Respond to the Census now by Clicking Here 

The Census is a pillar of our democracy that has been conducted every 10 years since 1790. It ensures that all are equally counted so they may be best represented at every level of government. The Census is critical to ensure that your community gets its fair share of over $1 trillion in funding and resources for the schools, hospitals, infrastructure and local businesses you rely on every day. 

While many of us are spending more time with our families indoors, we can use this time to help your community get the resources it needs by completing the Census. You can respond to the Census: 

  • Online by visiting my2020census.gov.
  • Over the phone by calling 1-800-330-2020
  • Or by mail.

For more information about how you can respond to the Census please visit https://2020census.gov/en/ways-to-respond.html. The Census is available in 12 languages online, over the phone, and through a paper form. There are also language guides for the 2020 Census in 59 Languages.

Your 2020 Census responses are completely confidential, and the Census Bureau is required to protect your personal information and keep it strictly confidential. To be clear – there will be NO citizenship question on the 2020 Census and you will NOT be asked for your social security number or your immigration status.   

If you are filling out the census for your home, you should count everyone who is living there as of April 1, 2020. This includes anyone—related or unrelated to you—who lives and sleeps at your home most of the time. Please be sure to count roommates, young children, newborns, and anyone who is renting a space in your home. If someone is staying in your home on April 1 and has no usual home elsewhere, you should count them in your response to the 2020 Census.

The U.S. Census Bureau is carefully monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic end encourages you to responding online, by phone, or by mail to minimize physical contact with census workers and help slow the spread of the virus.  For additional information on what measures are being taken to respond to COVID-19, please consult the following Census Bureau guidance

Sincerely, 

JOHN GARAMENDI
Member of Congress
