Act now to protect the census

US Census

Join LWVUS in opposing the inclusion of a citizenship question in the 2020 census. A complete and accurate census is critically important, particularly in South Carolina.  

Including a citizenship question on the census will:

  • suppress response rates in underserved communities.
  • disproportionately impact the allocation of resources for government services in all communities across the country.
  • jeopardize our ability to obtain an accurate count of all persons in the United States.
