Census count on now


EVERYBODY COUNTS --The sign above, located in Swinomish Village near Rainbow Bridge, is a reminder of how important it is to stand up and be counted for the 2020 Census. Conducted every 10 years, the Census helps establish levels of federal funding for communities, schools, hospitals, roads and other key services and programs. It also serves as the basis for determining political representation. – Photo by Ken Stern

No fooling, the national census, the Constitutionally mandated every 10 years count of every person n the United States, kicked off April 1st. Because we all count, it is critical that we all get counted. Federal funds for our communities and our state, and districting boundaries for state and national legislative seats are shaped by census results. If folks are missed, don’t get counted, everyone loses.

Door-to-door canvassing is limited by the COVID-19 virus pandemic. Your patriotic duty is to complete the census, for your good and the support of your neighbors and your community.
