Manchin Urges West Virginians To Complete 2020 Census

Washington, DC – Today in a video, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) urged West Virginians to complete the 2020 Census to ensure they are counted and West Virginia receives funding to help communities with programs and services.

“The U.S. Census is vital to ensuring all Americans are counted and represented every ten years. In West Virginia, every citizen who fills out the Census brings $20,000 in federal funding to West Virginia for vital programs and services across the state and secures correct representation for West Virginians in Congress. With one of the lowest 2020 Census response rates in the nation, West Virginia must do better. I encourage every West Virginian to fill out the Census by visiting or calling 844-330-2020 to help West Virginia receive federal funding for essential education programs, health services, and transportation. Again I urge every West Virginian to complete the Census so West Virginia gets counted,” said Senator Manchin.
