2020 Census

2020 Census logo

As mandated by the United States Constitution, every ten years there must be a count made of all person who live in the United States. We all count! An accurate Census count is vital for our communities in Oconee County, as we get a share of the approximately $800 billion dollars in Federal funding that is available each year. It’s vital for representation in Congress, and for our roads, schools, hospitals, and MORE! Make sure YOU are counted!

The 2020 U.S. Census will be conducted ONLINE for the first time in history. There will still be paper reminders mailed or hand delivered to homes, but the place to respond is online. Need a computer? Need Internet access? Come to the library! We will have extra resources dedicated to helping people GET COUNTED. The Bookmobile will also have extra computing resources at EACH STOP in the month of April, 2020, when the official count begins.

For more about the Census, and why it is SO IMPORTANT to make sure you’re counted, go to 2020census.gov. Census Day is April 1, 2020.

Your response is secure–BY LAW. None of the information asked for on the Census may be released for 72 years! There are no citizenship questions.
