Join us in the Census challenge

We’re in the final weeks and we NEED to get our Census response rate up! We challenge you to help out by contacting five people you know in Galveston and making sure they’ve completed the Census.

The new deadline for 2020 Census is Sept. 30.  Census takers began visiting all households this month that have not responded to the 2020 Census.  Several attempts to speak with the resident will be made. If resident is not home, a notice of visit is left at the door. 

Please remember that anyone can self-respond anytime between now and 9/30 online at , by phone (1-844-330-2020 English, 1-844-468-2020 Spanish, 1-844-474-2020 Portuguese) or mail. 

La nueva fecha límite para participar en el Censo 2020 es el 30 de septiembre.

Enumeradores ya empezaron a visitar a todas las vivendas que aun no han participan en el Censo.  Varias visitas se van a hacer para tratar de localizar al residente.  Si nadie esta en casa, dejaran un aviso de visita. Vea copia adjunta.

Recuerden que se puede responder al censo de ahora al 30 de septiembre en línea visitando, por teléfono al 1-844-468-2020 en español o por correo.
