Learn how to be counted in the 2020 census at the League of Women Voters meeting noon-1 p.m. today.

Brian J. Meinhart, senior partnership specialist with the U.S. Census Bureau, will be the featured speaker. He will outline how the census helps redistricting and ensures federal money comes back to Chaffee County.

Since post office box holders will not receive mailed forms, Meinhart will explain alternate avenues for completing the survey, including online, by phone or through the door-to-door census takers.

Marjorie Gray, leadership team coordinator for the Chaffee County League, urges residents of the county to attend the presentation and to participate in the census.

“You are important to the county and the nation, and it’s easy, safe and secure.”
