If every household mailed back its 2010 Census form, taxpayers could reduce the cost of taking the census and save $1.5 billion...and Friday is the last day.
Why is it so important that you fill in the form and promptly mail it back?
Census information affects the numbers of seats your state occupies in the U.S. House of Representatives.
It's easy to see what an accurate count of residents can do for your community- better infrastructure and more services. A brighter tomorrow for everyone. In fact, the information the census collects helps to determine how more than $400 billion dollars of federal funding each year is spent on infrastructure and services like:
* Job training centers
* Senior centers
* Bridges, tunnels and other-public works projects
* Emergency services
Participation isn't just important—it's mandatory! Please mail it back today. Friday is the last day to mail it back!
