The Navajo Nation’s 2020 Census Office is partnering with Navajo Nation Gaming to host two Census events in September. One event will be in the parking lot of Northern Edge Casino in New Mexico on September 19th. The second will be held September 26th at Twin Arrows Casino east of Flagstaff on Interstate-40. Census counts in Coconino County and the Navajo Nation have been low and these events are planned to help people be counted. High counts could add representation and funds for the Navajo Nation and the county, while lower counts could remove representation and money. All events provide the option to either drive through and or sit with a representative to complete the census questionnaire. Event attendees may also enjoy a free lunch while they respond to the census questionnaires and are reminded to wear a mask. You can fill out the census online at 2020census.gov or call 1-800-923-8282.
