Letter: Census: Vacation homeowners need to respond
Editor of the Reformer,
If you're a vacation homeowner, you've probably received a 2020 Census form in the mail at both your Vermont address and your primary address.
If you have a computer, it's important to go online and respond to BOTH of them using the 12-digit code in each letter.
The code is specific to your address. If you're a vacation homeowner who's a legal resident of another state, you still need to visit the my2020census.gov and respond using the code you received in your Vermont mailbox.
You'll only need to answer a few questions stating that you were NOT a legal resident here as of April 1 and that it's a second home. When you do, the computer will say "Thanks, you're done."
If you don't do this, they'll keep sending you follow-up mailings until you do.
If you already threw out the letter they sent you, they'll be sending you another one soon.
Since we're all stuck at home, it's a good time to get this chore out of the way.
