April 1 is Census Day

We Count Blaine 2020 Census

Today, April 1, is Census Day. Everyone needs to be counted, because data from the census will help determine how $15.5 billion in federal funds are distributed across Minnesota each year for things like health care, education, and roads.

As of the end of March, 54.2 percent of Blaine households had completed the census. That is a great start but there is still a long way to go.

After you have completed the census, please forward this message to at least three friends and encourage them to respond too. Help us spread the message that everyone should be counted where they live and sleep most of the time as of, April 1; and everyone who usually lives and sleeps in their household should be included in their count.

While the Census continues to make adjustments based on the COVID-19 outbreak, it is important to remember: it has never been easier for people to respond on their own, from the safety of their home. You can fill out your form online at http://my2020census.gov/ or on the phone by calling 844-330-2020, phone support is available in 14 languages.

Responding now will minimize the need to send census takers out into communities to follow up. 

If your have questions about the census, you can text them to 662020, or visit the We Count Minnesota website at http://mn.gov/admin/2020-census/ to learn more.
