Statesville CountsRESPOND TODAY TO THE 2020 CENSUS

There's been plenty of discussion over the 2020 Census deadline. Here's the situation.

The US Census Bureau extended the 2020 Census response deadline to October 31 at the onset of the COVID 19 Pandemic and requested Congress to relax the 2020 Census reporting deadlines. The US Senate failed to act on this request, and the Census Bureau shorted the response deadline to September 30 to meet the pre-COVID reporting schedule.

The US District Court of Northern California ruled on a case last week and extended the 2020 Census deadline to October 31. The Administration has appealed that decision.


Yesterday, US Commerce Secretary ordered October 5 to be the 2020 Census deadline. Here's the Census Bureau announcement of October 5 as the 2020 deadline. There are plenty of legal wheels still turning. Stay tuned.


There are other court cases involving the 2020 Census in the process. As of now, the Court have ruled that October 31 is the deadline, but there are appeals and the legal process is still working.
