The 2020 Census self-response deadline has been extended to Oct. 31 due to the COVID-19 pandemic; starting Aug. 11, Census Bureau enumerators will be deployed in the field to conduct in-person interviews with those households that have not yet responded.

Prior to August, we’re encouraging everyone to either: 1) visit the 2020 U.S. Census website to fill out their questionnaire online; 2) call the toll-free number at (844) 330-2020 (English) or (844) 468-2020 (Spanish) to speak with a live operator; or 3) mail in their completed paper copy of the 2020 Census.

ISBE’s Census website has toolkits and resources to help you reach your community.  Together we can make everyone count!
