IMPORTANT CENSUS INFO: In-person count begins week of Aug. 11by J.D. Bailey on 07/28/20
The U.S. Census Bureau’s door-to-door count process will begin the week of Aug. 11 in Magnolia and Columbia County. The in-person count effort will attempt to count any households that have not already submitted their census information.
Postcards are being sent this week as a reminder of the upcoming count. Postcards will not be sent to households that have already submitted information to the Census Bureau.
Advertising and social media marketing for the census count in Magnolia and Columbia County will continue throughout the counting process. Census workers will still attempt to count everyone in the city and county, no matter their immigration or citizenship status.
How to verify U.S. Census Bureau Employees:
- Workers will be identified by an I.D. badge that includes their name, photo, a U.S. Dept. of Commerce watermark, and expiration date.
- Workers will carry an official U.S. Census Bureau bag and laptop or smartphone with a census logo.
- Workers are only instructed to work from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
