TODAY is the deadline to mail back your 2010 Census form.
If you did not receive a questionnaire in the mail or you need another, you can pick them up and drop them off at the following locations:
Lynnwood City Hall (19100 44th Ave. W.)
Fire Station 15 (18800 44th Ave. W.)
Lynnwood Senior Center (5800 198th St. SW)
Starting May 1, Census workers will go door-to-door to households that did not send in a completed form.
So why should you care? Community planners rely on census data to make the case for providing critical social services and funding for community programs. Census data also helps determine how federal funds are distributed.
