[Letter to Editor] P.O. Boxes & 2020 Census

[Letter to Editor] P.O. Boxes & 2020 Census

Press Mention
Date of Release or Mention: 
Saturday, April 25, 2020

The 2020 Census informs decisions about critical funding for the public services to help our families flourish and the infrastructure that helps our communities thrive.

Starting on March 12, homes with mail service started receiving an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census.

Those with P.O. boxes do not receive mail at their home, and so will have their invitations delivered by Census workers.

Because there are many residential properties behind locked gates, as well as privacy concerns, and other aspects that make some homes hard to access, it might be difficult for Census workers to deliver invitations to every P.O. box in the county.

For this reason, we are encouraging people who use P.O. boxes to go to the Census website directly at 2020Census.gov. to self-respond. (See “Responding to the 2020 Census without a Census ID.”)

You can also submit your response by phone at 1-844-330-2020.

Shape your future. Your response matters!
