Make Sublette County and Wyoming count as part of the Census

Did you know that an incomplete census count can lead to a lack of critical resources in our communities, including roads, schools, hospitals, and libraries? Wyoming will lose hundreds of federal dollars for each resident not counted. It has never been easier to respond to the census: online, over the phone or by mail. Now is a great time! If you do it now, a census worker won't have to come to your door later.
