Be counted: SC mayors urge filling out census

Mar 18, 2010 4:06:00 AM - thestate.com
Mayors along the South Carolina coast are telling people they don't have to stand up to be counted. All they have to do is return their census forms in the mail.

Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr., the mayors of five other communities and the chairman of Charleston County Council gather on Thursday to urge residents to fill out census forms arriving this week.

They're telling people that it costs a lot more if census takers have to knock on the doors of those who don't return the forms.

They also say that undercounting can cost communities government aid.
