This is the first time that census can be filled out online. Please do so to make sure you are counted and to forego a visit from a census worker at your door steps. The deadline to be counted in the 2020 Census has been extended to August 14, 2020, but the sooner you and your family get counted, the better.

The census data are used for distribution of federal aid, grants and much more. It is important than every resident in Dukes County is counted. This included our Portuguese speaking neighbors, even the ones that perhaps might not have the proper documentation to be here. The census taking will not in any way impact their lives. Please encourage others to take the census too, so that in times of need, like we are in right now, our community receives our fair share of aid.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Dukes County Commissioner Keith Chatinover at email@example.com.
