A friendly reminder about a couple of important deadlines coming up:
1. 2 days left to be counted: The deadline to fill out the 2020 Census is this Wednesday, September 30th.
An accurate Census count is important in determining representation in Congress and the state legislature, California’s share of federal funding, and businesses’ decisions about where to locate or expand. We cannot allow an undercount that will leave communities unserved. If you haven’t yet, please use this link to fill out the 2020 Census online.
2. 21 days to make your voice count: The deadline to register to vote in the 2020 General Election is Monday, October 19th.
In 2016, millions of Americans lost their opportunity to vote because they missed the registration deadline or didn’t update their registration address.
You have a voice, and I am asking you to use it. Please take a moment to register to vote or to update your registration so you can vote in this year’s historic election.
Stand up and be counted today: complete the Census, and register or confirm your registration to vote.
