US Census for 2020. It's easy, it's quick, and it's important.

In a ruling earlier this week, the Supreme Court set the cut-off date for the US Census as today, October 15, 2020. Without going into the politics of the decision, it is important for you to fill out the US Census if you have not yet done so.

The US Census is important. So important that our forefathers wrote it into the Constitution. Yes, the Constitution of the United States mandates the US Census.

The US Census does several things, including helping the government know how much aid to send to areas devastated by natural disasters, like hurricanes. The US Census helps to determine proper representation in our government. It helps in the way of public safety and emergency preparedness. It helps to make our country better for everyone.

Contrary to some beliefs, the US Census is private; your personal information will not be shared.
