Parrish encourages District to complete 2020 Census form

Rep. Butch Parrish

ACCORDING TO CENSUS.GOV: Everyone living in the United States and its five territories is required by law to be counted in the 2020 Census.

IF YOU HAVE NOT YET COMPLETED YOUR 2020 CENSUS, SEE REP. BUTCH PARRISH'S COMMENTS BELOW FOR HOW TO COMPLETE IT!

State Representative Butch Parrish of Swainsboro encourages residents in Candler, Jenkins, Bulloch and Emanuel counties to participate in the 2020 U.S. Census before the September 30 deadline. 

“As of August 28, Georgia’s self-response rate is 60 percent, which is behind the national average of 64.6 percent; House District 158’s response rate is approximately 50 percent,” said Rep. Parrish.

The 2020 U.S. Census ensures accurate representation for districts at both the state and federal level. The number of Georgians counted in the census also helps direct federal funding to local communities for health care, emergency and disaster response, education and infrastructure. For demographic purposes, large and small businesses may also base their future planning on the census results.

Georgians can respond to the 2020 U.S. Census online at my2020census.gov, which takes approximately five minutes to complete. 

Households may also call 844-330-2020 or fill out and return the official U.S. Census Bureau mail that they may have received. Households have through September 30 to respond to the census, but they are encouraged to respond as soon as possible.

Additionally, the Governor’s Complete Count Committee (CCC) and his nonpartisan initiative called “Every. One. Counts.” have been working to ensure that every Georgia resident is counted.
