Office of the Supervisor

There have been some significant developments regarding the census, so I want to make sure you are aware of them.

First, the Census Bureau has decided to tighten what was thought to be the deadline to complete the form. As a result of the COVID-19 crises, the Census had pushed back the response deadline from mid-August to the end of October. The Bureau has now announced it will end the count on September 30. In our area, census workers are now starting to go door to door to help finish the count. But people don’t need to wait until a census worker comes knocking on their door. They can fill out the form now at “My2020Census.gov.” Census assistance numbers are: 844-330-2020 for English; 844-468-2020 for Spanish.

As a reminder, it only takes a few minutes for people to fill out the Census. The final numbers will determine how federal funding gets divided across the country. Congressional and legislative districts will be redrawn based on the figures as well.

Please help spread the word via your municipality’s social media, newsletter, reminders at board meetings, word of mouth etc.

Here are few links: The County Executive just published this news release that has all the pertinent information: https://www.dutchessny.gov/Departments/County-Executive/Molinaro-Urges-Fill-Out-Census-Workers-Start-Door-to-Door.htm

Also, this is great link about to expect when Census workers come to your door. This includes safety and identification protocols.
