Census Day
Apr 1 all-day

Responding to the census is easy and you have three options to respond: online, by phone or by mail.

You can expect to get a postcard with instructions from the U.S. Census Bureau in early March 2020. At that time, you’ll be able to respond online (2020census.gov) or by phone. A reminder postcard will be sent if you don’t respond after the first mailing. On the third reminder, a paper survey will be sent to your address to fill out and send back.

If you don’t respond online, by phone or by mail, a census worker will visit your home to try to make contact with you to fill out the census for you. If you respond to the census on time, a census worker is less likely to visit your home.

Census day is April 1, 2020. If you’re not sure who to count as part of your household, think about who stayed in your home on April 1. For example, if you share custody of a child, you can decide which household to count the child in, based on where they stayed on April 1.

Boone County was organized November 16, 1820, from a portion of the territorial Howard County. The area was then known as Boone's Lick Country, because of a salt lick which Daniel Boone's sons used for their stock.
