Census deadline Thursday

Posted by Iva Radman – email

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)--Thursday is the deadline to return the US Census questionnaire.

So far the results have not been what officials had hoped.

Those who don't mail it by Thursday, will receive a second questionnaire,  and ultimately, uncounted families will get a visit from  federal employees who will go door-to-door trying to get an accurate count.

Some good news though-- a new pew research poll shows that 86% of Latinos have either turned in their census or plan to.
