Complete the 2020 U.S. Census

The U.S. census directly affects how the State of Georgia receives federal funding.

Currently, Georgia is second only to Alabama with the LEAST amount of Census returns. An undercount directly translates to less federal funding for Georgians.

As Georgia, as well as the United States, experiences the spread of COVID-19, it is important to keep not only our workforce healthy in order to maintain Commission operations, but also the other citizens of the state. One of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of this virus is social distancing.

To achieve this goal, I would like to encourage all individuals making filings at the Commission to utilize the Alternative Electronic Filing Procedures outlined below. The office is still open at this time and UPS and FEDEX are still making deliveries to the Commission as well as the United States Postal Service. The Alternative Electronic Filing Procedures are being put in place to allow for limited person to person contact and achieve the goal of social distancing.
