By Asma Khalid

Volunteers across the District are hitting the streets today to encourage people to mail back their Census forms. It’s one last push to boost mail-back rates in hard-to count communities.

Merrit Drucker is in the parking lot at the Giant off 9th street with other volunteers.

"Today, we’re working these census tracks cause they were a little bit undercounted, so we’re pushing the outreach in these areas," he says.

They’re handing out free Census paraphernalia.... baseball caps, stickers, cavas bags.

In 2000, the District’s Census response rate was the third WORST in the country. Drucker was a volunteer then. This time, he’s optimistic the city will do better.
