Census 2020 - Your Response Matters

Due to COVID-19 and City Facility closures, Questionnaire Kiosks are currently NOT Available to the Public. You can still complete the Census!

Complete the census online or by calling 1-844-330-2020. For those who may not have an easy time completing the census at home, at work, over the phone, or on a personal device at this time, the City of Morgan Hill is providing a Questionnaire Kiosk at its City Hall location, 17575 Peak Avenue, and will be available when City Hall re-opens. The kiosk is located adjacent to the welcome desk and is available to the public for completing the census questionnaire, specifically. SantaClaraCensus_LogoThere are written instructions available; the kiosk does not have an attendant. Stay tuned for additional census kiosk locations and times open to the public in the coming weeks. 

When the Morgan Hill Library re-opens, it also has multiple internet-ready computers available for the general public to complete the census questionnaire. If you don’t have a library card, you can still obtain a pass to use one of its computer stations at the library’s Information Desk. The Library is running a contest for residents who take the census in the library to win a Starbucks Gift Card. Visit the Library at 660 Main Street for more details. 

Take the Census as soon as possible to avoid extra mailed reminders and Census Bureau enumerators at your door. The Census Bureau has provided a how-to video (video may load slowly) with step-by-step instructions, available in many languages.

Census data, collected only every 10 years, determines: 

  • Congressional representation
  • How funds are spent on things like roads, schools, and hospitals
  • Redistricting of your city, county, state, and federal political boundaries
  • Plus dozens of other of community benefits (PDF) covering national, regional, state, and local entities. The Census Bureau website offers a number of references in its "Get the Facts" tab.
