WYTHE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) – Officials with the Wythe County Administrator’s Office asks local residents to complete their Census form if they have not yet done so.

In March, post cards were mailed out by Census officials to every household in the country that provides instructions completing the 2020 Census.

Due to the pandemic, though, some residents may not have the Census at the forefront of their minds.

The response rate in Virginia is 58 percent and we’re barely over 50 percent so we’re encouraging local residents who may have been preoccupied with everything else going on in the world to take about ten minutes and complete the 2020 Census.”

Michelle Cassell, Wythe County Census Committee

Cassell says that completing the Census takes about ten minutes and can be done quickly at www.My2020Census.gov.

Residents who do not have web access can complete the Census by phone at (844) 330-2020 for English speakers or (844) 468-2020 for Spanish speakers.

Representatives are available every day from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. Eastern Time.
