3) You can fill out the Census by paper and mail it in! 

If you want to mail in your Census form and you did not fill it out online or by phone yet, you will get the paper form in the mail around April 8-16.  Then you can fill it out and mail it in.

4) You can fill out the Census with a Census worker!

If you are not able to or have not filled out the Census online, by phone, or by mailing in the paper form, you can still get help from a Census worker. Starting in late May, Census workers will come to where you live and help you fill out the Census in person. This date may change because of COVID-19.
