This coming Monday, check out the U.S. Census Bureau’s Traveling Road Show on the south lawn of the Capitol. The event is open to the public.
The Portrait of America Road Tour includes interactive exhibits where participants will share images and stories, explaining why the census will make a difference to their communities. You can learn more about the road tour on Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, YouTube or Flickr. You also can track the vehicles throughout the country on an interactive map on the Web site, 2010census.gov.
Monday is the targeted mail out date for census forms, so in addition to the Bureau’s exhibits and the live entertainment, they will be a press conference at 11:30 a.m. to remind residents to be watching for their forms, fill them out and mail them back.
In Missouri, Gov. Nixon created the statewide Complete Count Committee by executive order. The committee is chaired by OA Commissioner Kelvin Simmons and its purpose is to raise awareness of the 2010 Census and encourage full participation by all Missourians. We need a complete count.
