Everybody Counts! Come Learn About the Census
Every person counts, especially when it comes to the 2020 census.
Livingston County Democrats will learn how wey can help make sure every person in Michigan is counted for next year’s census at the July meeting.
The census will determine how many representatives Michigan has in the U.S. House, how many votes Michigan will have in the electoral college, and how much money the state will receive from the federal government. This year, about 40 percent of Michigan's $55.4 billion budget comes from the federal government, helping pay for crucial programs such as Medicaid.
Ethan Hayes will talk to party members about how Livingston County residents can get involved -- including landing a paid job for the U.S. Census. Hayes is a Recruiting Assistant for the Field Division covering Livingston, Oakland, Washtenaw, and Monroe Counties for the U.S. Census Bureau.
The meeting will be 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 25, at the Community Unitarian Universalists in Brighton. Refreshments will be served.
The monthly business meeting will follow. Democratic Party members also will be able to vote on the proposed bylaws changes which were mailed to them earlier this month.
