Take the Census online or by phone. Spread the Word!

Unfortunately, public library closures are overlapping with the original Census response period, meaning people who would have participated via a library computer don’t currently have that access. Remember, another safe, easy, and quick way to respond is via telephone, toll free. The number for English speakers is 844-330-2020, and there are additional phone numbers for more than a dozen other languages. Census answers will be taken by real people who have taken oaths of confidentiality, not by a computer or voice mail system. Find more detail and additional phone numbers at: https://2020census.gov/en/ways-to-respond/responding-by-phone.html
