Incentives to encourage all Seminole County citizens to register for the census by the September 30th deadline are in place and a local group of concerned citizens is offering a $1,000 incentive to take the time and get counted.
On October 1, the name of one Seminole County resident who has registered for the 2020 census will be randomly picked to receive the prize. To make sure your name is in the running for the census sign up incentive, just like the hundred plus residents who have signed up in the past two weeks at City Hall and past Saturday’s sign up stations, Seminole County residents must submit proof of census registration to the Donalsonville News office by 5 p.m. on September 30. Residents will also be in the running for the prize if they register at Donalsonville City Hall or register at one of the census sign-up stations to be set up around the county through the end of September.
In addition to the $1,000 incentive, residents of Donalsonville will receive a $5 credit on their utility bills if they register and get counted at Donalsonville City Hall.
Information submitted will not be shared with any other government agency and will be used only to determine an accurate count of county residents. Complete the Census online at 2020census.gov or call 844-330-2020.
