I completed my census and understand the importance of it. However, my beef with the entire thing is the before and after mail, and the rought wording of the census itself.

I live in Pavilion & have not rec'd. the census in the mail. From what I heard, everyone who has a PO Box (which I do) will have theirs delivered to their homes personally. I wonder why? Time is running out!
