Oregon Counts 2020 Website Unveiled, Public Awareness Campaign Underway
Contributed by: Megan Chuinard | Public Affairs Associate
With a sixth congressional seat and resources estimated to be upwards of $900 million dollars on the line, the State, Association of Oregon Counties (AOC), cities, and advocacy organizations are all involved in the Oregon Complete Counts Committee and are actively spreading the message to get Oregon to a complete count. To view the work of the committee, visit https://www.oregon2020census.gov/or-complete-count-committee.
Starting in mid-March of 2020, Oregon households will receive their first mailing from the U.S. Census Bureau soliciting participation in the census. The official Census Day is April 1, but efforts do not stop there. In May enumerators will begin their follow up with households that have not responded, and at the end of July, the count ends.
