Fill Out Your Census Form Online

Wasco County Commissioners met yesterday in regular session. Paying a visit at the meeting was Mark Czornij (CHORE-knee) of the regional Bureau of the Census. Every 10 years, the Article 1, Section 2 of US Constitution requires that every person in the United States be counted. Among other things, it determines how the 435 members of Congress are apportioned among the states, and how many federal funds are distributed. Next year, he told the commissioners, the bureau will attempt to count more than 360 million people. But they’ll get help from  a new way to fill out your form.
