Complete Count Commission

On April 1, 2020, a census mandated by the U.S. Constitution will be taken. The Virginia Complete Count Commission was established to serve as a trusted voice and resource to educate, empower, and engage communities to ensure that all of the diverse voices in the Commonwealth of Virginia are counted in the 2020 Census.

On December 18, 2018, Governor Northam signed Executive Order Twenty Seven establishing the Virginia Complete Count Commission. The purpose of the Virginia Complete Count Commission is to improve the participation and representation of all Virginians in the 2020 Census. The Commission will facilitate the sharing of ideas and community resources regarding the 2020 Census as well as serve as a conduit between the Commonwealth and the United States Census Bureau.
