Earlier this week the Census Bureau announced that the Census operational timeline has been shortened and the deadline to self-respond has been moved to September 30th. Previously the deadline was October 31st. With only 60% of Buckeye households having responded to the 2020 Census, this change can have a huge effect on our outcome and could potentially result in an under count within our community.
Given that times are very uncertain, we would like to continue encouraging our residents to self-respond and participate in the 2020 Census at my2020census.gov We would also like to encourage residents to cooperate with the upcoming Census field operations.
With all this in mind, please consider sharing Census updates through your personal networks and social media accounts. While our marketing team has done an exceptional job promoting the 2020 Census, we are hopeful that your involvement and support will help encourage further cooperation.
