2020 Census field operations pick up as deadline nears

PORTALES (KSEL)- The Portales Police Department has provided key information to the public as the deadline for the 2020 Census nears.

Between now and September 30, Census enumerators will be deployed to visit households that have not already responded to make sure they are counted during the Non-Response Follow-up Operation.

If residents are not home when census workers visit, they will leave a notice of their visit with information about how to respond online or by phone.

Please help ensure the success of this operation by sharing the following message with your community:

  • Census takers will wear masks and follow public health guidelines when they visit.
  • A census enumerator can be easily identify, by the census enumerator government ID badge and Census Bureau phone.
  • Many census takers will also carry a bag with the Census Bureau logo.
