City of Southfield to hold Get Out to Vote absentee ballot drop-off and 2020 Census completion event
Partnership focused on improving Southfield’s 2020 Census response rate
The city of Southfield, in partnership with Urban Unity, is sponsoring a citywide ‘Get Out to Vote’ outdoor event on Saturday, October 17 from 1-4 p.m. at the Southfield Public Library, 26300 Evergreen Road.
The event will include COVID-19 testing (oral swab), raffle giveaways, voter registration, live music, absentee ballot drop-off, workout demonstrations and completion of the 2020 Census survey. Complimentary food will be available for the first 100 people participating in the event.
“We are on the final push for the 2020 Census response,” commented Mayor Ken Siver. “It is vitally important that every Southfield resident completes the 2020 Census as federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities are based on population totals. We need every Southfielder to respond because everyone counts in Southfield!”
Face masks and social distancing will be required. For more information, call the Mayor’s Office at (248) 796-5100 or visit www.cityofsouthfield.com.
