SUMMIT COUNTY – Local residents are encouraged to fill out the 10-question U.S. Census form delivered to their households, as the Summit County numbers are dismal relative to the rest of the state and country.

“However, you can pick up a ‘Be Counted’ questionnaire at one of our assistance centers, or if you prefer, after April 12, you can request a form from our telephone questionnaire assistance phone line,” according to a press release issued by Summit County government.

The assistance center is available at 1-866-872-6868, and lines are open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
