2020 Census Deadline Increased to October 15

October 14, 2020

A federal judge in California has issued a temporary order to force the Census Bureau to continue counting through the month of October. The immediate effect of this order is that it stops the Census from winding down their operations for the time being. Because of this, the deadline for the 2020 Census self-response has now been extended to Thursday, October 15. If you have not done so already, we highly encourage your participation during this time. This is your FINAL opportunity to complete the 2020 Census!

As of Wednesday, October 14, the City has a self-response rate of 81.2% and is still growing. Please help us reach our goal of 90% participation!  

You may respond online, by phone, or by mail. Responding online is the quickest and easiest way to complete.
