Did Anyone Else Receive Another Census Form?

I got another form today. I filled the other one out and mailed it back already.

I wonder if I'm suppose to do it again or what.

 I did! I was wondering the same thing, I already filled one out and mailed it back last week but I got a new one in the mail today for some reason.

 I would call the local number for the census and ask them what happened.

The extent of American ignorance continues to amaze me

no thats just if you lost the first one I think. I called to ask for another one and the lady told me another one would come and just fill that one out.

I heard it was a scam on the local news.  They said people were sending out second forms to get information from you.

From the Washington Post Website.

Alexandria, Va.: Hi Stacy, I have received two census forms. I got one two weeks ago, filled it out and sent it back and then received a second one yesterday. I didn't check the address on the first one but the one on the form yesterday had my correct address. Should I fill out both forms and mail them in or just trash this 2nd set?

Stacy Gimbel: Hi Alexandria, you just need to mail back one form, so it sounds like you're good to go. It sounds like you may have received what we call a "replacement questionnaire." Those have started going out this week. We've learned from research that people (thankfully you weren't one of them!) often put their census forms aside thinking they'll get to them later. Unfortunately, sometimes that form gets lost under a pile of other mail and forgotten about. So - we've learned we get a boost in response if we send another form. Thanks for filling yours out! Feel free to toss the other one in a way you're comfortable with.

 

Seems like a big waste of money, especially since if you dont get one, you can just call them. Dang
