NORTH TEXAS CENSUS 2020. In the United States, every new decade since 1790 has been ushered in with the Census. This year a complete count is more important than ever. Federal, state, and local governments use census data for things like redistricting and appropriating funds as well as the number of seats Texas will be allowed in the U. S. House of Representatives. Estimates suggest Texas could gain up to three U.S. House seats after the 2020 census. This impacts everything from health clinics, schools, and emergency services to transportation and infrastructure. The 2020 census is the first in which most people are being encouraged to answer the questions online.
On March 9th, the public website dedicated specifically to Grayson County census info, went live. The web address is https://www.grayson2020census.com. Beware of fraudulent callers — the Bureau will never ask respondents for their Social Security number, request bank or credit card numbers, seek money or donations, or solicit anything on behalf of a political party.
We invite you to join us Monday evening for a timely and important update on the 2020 Census. To watch the Facebook live, simply visit the Texoma Patriots Facebook page at 7 p.m.
