Everyone Counts in Montgomery

It’s time to get counted! County Executive Marc Elrich and Montgomery County Council President Nancy Navarro recently launched the United States 2020 Census outreach activities in Montgomery County.

Census Day is Wednesday, April 1, 2020; and Montgomery County’s theme for the 2020 integrated partnership and communications campaign is, “Everyone Counts in Montgomery.”

The Census Bureau's primary mission is conducting the U.S. Census every 10 years, which allocates the seats of the U.S. House of Representatives to the states based on their population. The bureau's various censuses and surveys help allocate federal funds each year; and it helps states and local jurisdictions make informed decisions such as where to build and maintain schools, hospitals, transportation infrastructure, and public safety departments.

  1. Unless you are a citizen... then you are 2nd class.

  2. Every Citizen counts in Montgomery

  3. The Census is important for everyone in Montgomery County, MD.

  4. Will the census ask about citizenship? It should.

    1. Here is a link to a news release about the census questions: https://www.census.gov/newsroom/press-releases/2018/2020-question.html

      It indicates that citizenship is a question on the census.

  5. Congressional representation and revenue sharing should be only for citizens and the question should be on the census form. There is no reason that people that are not citizens should have a say in our government. I constantly hear the lie that they pay taxes, but these taxes that they pay go nowhere close to what they cost taxpayers - for example, each of their children that attend public schools cost real taxpayers over $15,000 per child per year.
