*Your action needed due to Census changes*

TWO BIG CENSUS CHANGES

ENDING EARLIER… The US Census will be closing the census to responses on September 30, 2020, NOT October 31, 2020.

DUE TO COVID-19 CONCERNS… The Census Bureau is adapting their outreach efforts and may not have the same intensity as in previous Census counts, and thus may not have the same potential effectiveness.

WHY…. Accurately counting all the residents of Butts County determines voting districts, government funding for local services, such as schools and roads, and even how much sales tax the County receives…for the next 10 years.
