As of July 15, 2020, Sutton has had 47.4% of residents respond and now is the time to get this number up! Your response is important as it impacts funding for things like hospitals, schools, roads and bridges, and more. It also makes sure that Sutton receives equal representation in Congress and fair representation at the local and state levels. You can respond online, by phone, or by mail! Count everyone where they would normally have lived on April 1, 2020, even if they were staying somewhere else. This includes babies, young children, foster children, and nonrelatives who live with you. If your college students are home because of COVID-19, they should still be counted “where they usually live and sleep most of the time”. For most students, that means in their college town. Responding now will help minimize the need for the Census Bureau to send Census takers out in the community to follow up. While the Census Bureau continues to carefully monitor the COVID-19 situation and follows the guidance of federal, state, and local health authorities, Census works will be following up in person at properties in New Hampshire this August that have not yet responded. If you haven’t received a Census ID in the mail: You can still respond! While on the 2020 Census Response web site, select the link under the login button that says, “If you do not have a Census ID, click here.” You will be asked to enter your address. Seasonal residents and properties should still respond: If you live at multiple places throughout the year, count yourself at the address where you live and sleep most of the time. If you split your time evenly between two or more places, count yourself where you were staying on April 1, 2020. However, a census response is required from each and every property. For a property you own but only use part of the time, enter “0” for the number of people living at this property. You will be able to select “Seasonal” as the primary reason.
