The easiest thing to do it to go online to MY 2020 Census DOT GOV (https://my2020census.gov/login) If you don’t have the ability to do the census online – you can do the questionnaire by phone. Call 844-330-2020. Whether you do the 2020 census online or by phone – the Warm Springs Complete Count Committee asks that you take time to do your census today, if you haven’t already done so.
