WASHINGTON – Today is Constitution Day, which marks the signing of the U.S. Constitution on this day in 1787. This Constitution Day, Senator Maggie Hassan (D-NH) is encouraging all Granite Staters to complete the census, which is mandated in Article I, Section II of the Constitution.
“As enshrined in the Constitution, every 10 years we conduct a nationwide count of everybody in the United States. This Constitution Day, I encourage everyone to do their part and get counted by filling out the U.S. census,” said Senator Hassan. “The census determines political representation in Congress – and in Concord – and helps ensure that federal dollars are fairly distributed to communities to help them invest in services like schools, health care, public safety, and infrastructure. Thank you to all the Granite Staters who have already completed this year’s census, and if you haven’t done so yet, I encourage you to do so today. Completing the census is quick, easy, and secure – it takes just a few minutes.”
Granite Staters can complete the census online, over the phone, or by mail, and all responses are confidential. In the past few months, the Census Bureau mailed invitations to participate in the 2020 census. These invitations include a 12-digit Census ID for respondents to use when completing the census online at 2020census.gov.
If access to the internet is limited, Granite Staters can respond by calling 1-844-330-2020 or fill out a paper questionnaire.
