Despite the COVID pandemic's impacts on the 2020 Census, the statutory deadline for 2020 Census data collection was not extended by the current administration.

Vermont is among states with the lowest response rates in the country. We need everyone living in Vermont to be counted to ensure our taxpayer dollars come back to the state, and to ensure our legislative districts are accurate.
Thirty percent (30%) of VT households have yet to respond or be counted by an enumerator.
