Coloradans not giving fuck about census

17 Apr

Coloradans lagged behind their national counterparts in mailing in their 2010 census forms.

At Friday’s deadline for residents to send in forms and avoid a knock on their doors, only 67 percent of the state’s households had submitted them compared with 69 percent nationally. That ranks the state 30th in the nation.

In 2000, 73 percent of Colorado households mailed in forms compared with 72 percent nationally after all the returns had been tabulated by that fall.

Officials expect Colorado’s mail rate to rise between now and the fall.

“If they got their forms in the mail (Friday), they likely won’t receive a visit from a census worker,” said Census Bureau spokeswoman Deborah Cameron.

Several hundred census workers will descend on households that haven’t returned forms starting May 1.

Public service announcement:

The first time someone is caught without a ticket, they are issued a warning.

The second time, a fine of $50 is issued.

The fine can be argued in court.

If the fine is not paid and court is skipped, a warrant may be issued for misdemeanor theft.

Fare inspectors are not police officers.

So what if all the colleges burn down? (we don’t really care)
