Cook County Treasurer's Office - 2/4/2020
More than 1.6 million people in Cook County live in areas that are the hardest for the U.S. Census Bureau to count in the nation, Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas said today at a news conference where she was joined by other Chicago-area elected officials who urged residents to participate in the 2020 Census.
The elected officials gathered around a dedicated computer workstation on the front counter of the Treasurer's Office where residents ran register for the 2020 Census starting in mid-March. It is the first such location in Cook County government. Brochures about the 2020 Census in Spanish, Polish and English are also available.
"The first counter here … is the central focus of where everyone comes to talk and complain ande get answers to questions," Pappas said. "We are now adding to that list the opportunity for everyone to walk in here and do their Census application online. And we Will Help them."
