It was no joke - Census Day was April 1; the deadline the U.S. Census Bureau requested for citizens to mail their questionnaires back. Elected officials and community leaders throughout the nation celebrated Census Day as an effort to increase participation. Governor Tim Pawlenty declared April 1, as 2010 Census Day in the State of Minnesota.

As of this week, 50 percent of Itasca County residents have responded so far; 65 percent of Grand Rapids residents; and 62 percent statewide, according to the U.S. Census Website. But, don't fret, there is still time to take part in this very important event. Now through April 10, the Census Bureau will mail another round of 2010 Census questionnaires to about 40 million households. These replacement questionnaires will give households that have not yet responded another opportunity to fill out their form and return it by mail. Unlike the first round of questionnaires, these will be mailed not dropped off by a trained census taker. The mailing is a polite reminder and surveys have found that this second questionnaire leads to higher response rates.
