Census Day is April 1, 2020
Make Sure Illinois Counts
Every 10 years, a census is taken of all persons living in the United States. It is important that every Illinois resident be counted so our state population accurately reflects our needs.
The 2020 Census can help our community plan for a variety of resident needs including new roads, schools and emergency services. It helps determine how billions of dollars in Federal funding is distributed to states and communities every year. It determines how many representatives our State gets in Congress and is used to redraw district boundaries.
Beginning mid-March households will receive an invitation in the mail to respond. Every household will have the option of responding online, by mail or by phone.
Taking part is everyone's civic duty. Completing the census is a way to participate in our democracy and say "I Count"!
