People Count: The Census: Future funding and representation in government relies on accurate counts of how many people are living here in Orleans County, citizens and non-citizens alike.

The count is wrapping up at the end of September. Make sure someone in your household has mailed back the paper form or gone to 2020Census.gov or called to complete the survey and included everyone living and sleeping mostly in your household as of April 1, 2020. For English, call 844-330-2020.  Para español, llame:  844-468-2020. Phone numbers for other languages are listed on the website.

Voices Count: Voting: Future governance relies on each of us finding out more about candidates and making informed decisions.

Modern technology makes primary sources available. For example, look at whether Congressperson Chris Jacobs, filling out the last 6 months of Chris Collin’s term, is representing you or only voting at the pleasure of the president: https://clerk.house.gov/Votes.

Citizens: Register to vote by October 9. Vote early, starting October 24.

From many, one caring community.
