ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The deadline to fill out your census is Sept. 30, exactly one week away.
According to Census Bureau officials, about 51% of people in the city have submitted their census online, by mail or over the phone.
For those who haven't responded, census workers are making their way through the community to make sure you're counted.
As a reminder, this is important so our area gets as much money as possible from the federal government. It also is used to determine how many people represent us in Congress.
