Census Deadlines Extended

The deadline for citizens to submit responses to the 2020 United States Census has been extended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Citizens now have until October 31 to submit a response for each household.  The public may respond in one of three ways:  online; by telephone; or by mail.

Beginning August 11, Census takers will visit households to collect information in person from households who have not yet submitted a response. All census takers are required to have an official photo ID issued by the U.S. Census Bureau. *Citizens may avoid having a Census Taker visit their home by responding to the Census before this date.

It is very important that all households in Currituck County submit a response to the Census. Data collected by the U.S. Census helps determine how much federal funding Currituck will receive for many community aspects such as transportation, schools, social services, and more. The Census also determines how many seats each state receives in the U.S. House of Representatives.

It’s not too late to submit information to the 2020 Census. All information is confidential and can only be used to formulate Census data. Every local response will benefit Currituck County!
