LAKE COUNTY -- Census takers began visiting homes that have not yet responded to the 2020 Census in July.
"Please take the time to participate in our 2020 Census if you haven't done so," said Lake County emergency management director Patrick Maddox. "The response deadline is now Sept. 30, 2020. To date, participation in Lake County is an unimpressive 26.1 percent. It is very important that Lake County has adequate participation. Overall, the 2020 Census will determine congressional representation, determine hundreds of billions in federal funding every year, and provide data that will impact communities for the next decade."
