Census 2020

Everyone Counts!

The US Constitution requires the federal government to count everyone living in the country every 10 years. The tally must include people of ALL ages, races, and all citizens and non-citizens, regardless of immigration status. Every household should complete a census form (either online or by mail or phone) by April 1, 2020.

Everyone needs to be counted.

  1. What's in it for me?
  2. Is it safe?
  3. What if I don't respond?

Census 2020

Responding to the census is not only your civic duty; it also affects the amount of funding our local community receives, how Redmond and other cities plan for the future, and your representation in government. 

Specifically, data from the 2020 Census are used to:

•Ensure public services and funding for schools, hospitals, and fire departments.

•Plan new homes and businesses and improve neighborhoods.

•Determine how many seats our state is allocated in the House of Representatives. 


Remember

The Census Bureau will never ask for:

  • Social Security numbers.
  • Bank or credit card account numbers.
  • Money or donations.
  • Anything on behalf of a political part
