ATLANTA – Members of the Georgia House Democratic Caucus (GHDC) encourage all Georgia residents to participate in the 2020 U.S. Census today, Thursday, Oct. 15, 2020, by midnight.

Households can complete the census online or by phone by 5:59 a.m. EST on Friday, Oct. 16, but the GHDC urges residents to participate as soon as possible. As of Oct. 13, Georgia’s self-response rate is 62.7 percent, which is behind the national average of 66.8 percent.

The 2020 U.S. Census ensures accurate representation for districts at both the state and federal level. The number of Georgians counted in the census also helps direct federal funding to local communities for health care, emergency and disaster response, education and infrastructure. For demographic purposes, large and small businesses may also base their future planning on the census results.

Georgians can respond to the 2020 U.S. Census online at my2020census.gov, which takes approximately five minutes to complete. Households may also call the following language-specific phone numbers to receive help completing the census: English, 844-330-2020; Spanish, 844-468-2020; Chinese (Mandarin), 844-391-2020; Chinese (Cantonese) 844-398-2020; Vietnamese, 844-461-2020; Korean, 844-392-2020; Russian, 844-417-2020; Arabic, 844-416-2020; Tagalog, 844-478-2020; Polish, 844-479-2020; French, 844-494-2020; Haitian Creole, 844-477-2020; Portuguese, 844-474-2020; Japanese, 844-460-2020; English (Puerto Rico residents), 844-418-2020; and Spanish (Puerto Rico residents), 844-426-2020.
