Media Advisory -- Seven-day Countdown Begins: Mail Back Census Forms by April 16
Public Information Office
On April 10th, the seven-day clock starts for residents to return 2010 Census forms by mail. Those who do not mail back the form by April 16th may be visited by a census worker starting in May.
With just seven days left for households to mail back their 2010 Census forms, thousands of volunteers in more than 6,000 neighborhoods plan to participate in “March to the Mailbox” parades, marches, walks, rallies and motorcades Saturday designed to remind people that it's not too late to mail back their forms.
These grassroots efforts, led by census partners, volunteers and local residents, are being held nationwide in neighborhoods with low mail participation rates -- from Albuquerque to Worchester and Los Angeles to Long Island. During events, volunteers and community leaders will come together in high traffic areas to remind residents that it is not too late to mail back their Census forms and encourage those who have delayed to “March to the Mailbox” and mail it back today.
