Vacation-home owners: Get census done

TOWNSHEND — If you're a vacation-home owner, you've probably received a 2020 Census form in the mail at both your Vermont address and your primary address.

If you have a computer, it's important to go online and respond to both of them using the 12-digit code in each respective letter.

The code is specific to your address. If you're a vacation-home owner who's a legal resident of another state, you still need to visit my2020census.gov and respond using the code you received in your Vermont mailbox.

You'll need to answer only a few questions, stating that zero people resided in your Vermont house as of April 1 and that it's a second home. When you do, the computer will say “Thanks, you're done."

If you don't do so, the U.S. Census Bureau will keep sending you follow-up mailings until you do.

If you already threw out the letter they sent you, they'll be sending you another one soon.

Since we're all stuck at home, it's a good time to get this chore out of the way.
