Complete the U.S. Census Today! Deadline Extended to Oct. 31.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the U.S. Census in April!

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, the U.S. Census Bureau has adjusted its operations so that the self-response period will now continue through October 31. What does that mean? You and your neighbors can complete the census — online, over the phone or by mail — now through October.

Your participation will help shape the future of Mecklenburg County, so please take a few minutes out of your day to complete the Census questions and help spread the word:

  • Email or text your friends a challenge to complete the census
  • Share information with your clubs and groups
  • Take a photo and post it on social media with #MakeMeckCount
  • Your own (socially distanced) idea for outreach!

Curious about how the data will be used, what you will be asked, and more? Visit to educate yourself on everything there is to know about the U.S. Census and how your participation can help generate funding for our local community and beyond.

Thank you for making it count!
