Take the Census at my2020Census.gov.
Starting around March 12, you’ll receive an invitation in the mail from the U.S. Census Bureau to participate in the 2020 Census. That invitation will have a unique code for your household and directions for how to take it online. If you don’t get your invitation or if you lose your code, all is not lost. You’ll still be able to take the census online. We’ll have information on our website, CityofChesapeake.net/Census-2020 about how to do that.
If you don’t have access to the internet, you can visit any Chesapeake Public Library to use their computers. There will also be people there who can help you if you need it. If you don’t take the census online or by phone, the U.S. Census Bureau will continue to reach out to you until finally sending someone to your door sometime in the spring to get your information.
You can get a preview of all the questions the Census will ask on our Census webpage, noted above. A few things that you will NOT be asked about include your social security number, bank account information, political party, religion, or citizenship information.
