ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — After the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the Census Bureau to cut short its once-every-decade vote counting, you have just a little more time to fill out the nationwide survey.


Paper census responses must be postmarked by Thursday, Oct. 15, while the deadline to submit your response online is 6 a.m. Friday, Oct. 16.

The deadline to complete the survey by phone is 10 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15. To begin, call 844-330-2020, or call the number associated with your preferred language.  

The Census Bureau clarified a Supreme Court ruling that the Trump administration can stop census field operations early. 

Without an accurate count, New York risks losing representation in Congress, federal funds, and other forms of government aid.
