Don’t forget to respond: 2020 Census reminder postcards arriving

Body

The U.S. Census Bureau is now sending reminder notice postcards to an estimated 69 million households that have not yet responded to the 2020 Census. About 53.7% of households across the country have responded since invitations began arriving in mailboxes on March 12. Those households that have not yet responded to the census will receive an in-person visit by a census taker to collect their information later this summer.

Starting April 27-May 9, households will receive another reminder postcard in the mail. Responding now to the 2020 Census minimizes the need for a census taker to visit your home later this year. For more information, visit <2020census.gov>.
