ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Starting Thursday, people will begin receiving official information packets from the Census Bureau.
Those packets will be delivered through March 20.
Once you receive the packet, you should fill it out and send it in. People can also respond by phone or, for the first time ever, it can be filled out online.
Remember, the census has a huge impact on how much money the state gets from the federal government. It also affects how our area is represented in congress.
Watch the video above for more information.
More information on this year's census can be found at whec.com/census.
