For the first time Americans can complete their Census questionnaire online. While the new online option is a plus for many residents, there are many households in our city that do not have internet access. The importance of having citizens participating in the 2020 Census prompted the City of Aiken to extend computer resources to those residents who wish to respond online on April 4, 11 AM – 1 PM at the Lessie B. Price Aiken Senior and Youth Center, located at 841 Edgefield Ave NW, Aiken, SC.

The U.S. Constitution mandates that a census be taken every 10 years to count all people—both citizens and noncitizens—living in the United States. An accurate count of the population serves as the basis for fair political representation and plays a vital role in many areas of public life.
