The federal government calls today National Census Day to mark the deadline for sending in your census questionnaire. It's not a hard deadline, though, and the government continues its publicity push to encourage more participation.
So far, of the 134 million forms that have been mailed to households, more than half have been mailed back. Today, cities across the country will hold rallies to encourage the rest of America to get its forms in.
Not everyone is willing to participate, though. Some conservatives have targeted the census, and the Houston Chronicle reports that members of some anti-government groups have not filled out the census as form of protest against Washington.
The government will dispatch Census Bureau employees door-to-door to look for nonresponders, costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars.
Our question to you today: Have you returned your census form? If not, why not?
