Elbert County is seeking volunteers for its 2020 Census Complete Count Committee. Volunteers will meet periodically between May 2019 and June 2020 to help the U.S. Census Bureau plan and conduct local initiatives and promotional activities to increase Elbert County citizen participation in the 2020 Census in April 2020. Commissioners will appoint members of the committee and hope to include representation from local businesses, community groups, local government, education, and religious groups, as well as other representatives who can connect with and encourage Elbert County's diverse citizens to participate in the census. The count is used to determine the County's representation in the Colorado State Legislature and U.S. House of Representatives, and to properly redistrict state and county voting districts. It's also important in determining how much federal funding Elbert County receives for health, education and transportation programs. The count is critical to Elbert County's future - please help us make it a success!
