As we approach our new normal, healthcare, education, and public safety are more important than ever. Skokie has recently hit a 75% milestone, but 1 out of 4 households have yet to respond. Time is running out!
We applaud those of our residents who have taken a few moments to complete the census. If you have not completed the census, we are asking you to take the time to do so now. Do your part to help yourself and your community in this difficult time.
Census workers will begin in-person visits on July 30th to non-responding addresses. Census officials will be wearing personal protective equipment and will be following CDC social distancing guidelines.Census officials will visit each un-counted address until that house and its residents have been counted. To avoid in-person interaction, complete the 2020 Census online, by phone at 844/330-2020, or complete and send the copy you were mailed. An incomplete census questionnaire results in a fine of $100, and false information on a census questionnaire results in a fine of $500.
In March, Skokie residents received an invitation to respond to the census questionnaire. You can respond online, with your smartphone, by phone, or by mail. The questionnaire is less than 10 questions long and is expected to take less than 10 minutes to complete.
