NC Complete Count Committees

North Carolina’s goal is to ensure each and every resident of North Carolina is counted and we rely upon community partnerships and outreach to help! Organizations, local governments and communities established Complete Count Committee (CCC) across the state to help educate the public, raise awareness and promote Census participation. The North Carolina Complete Count Commission partners with regional and local CCC to increase participation and help achieve the most accurate and complete count of North Carolina's residents. 

Finding a Complete Count Committee

The most recent list of Complete Count Committees in North Carolina as provided by the US Census Bureau can be found at US Census Complete Count Committee List. It is not too late to join a committee and help with Census 2020 outreach. If you don’t see a committee for your area, there may still be options. Check with your local municipality offices/websites, area colleges/universities, common community and advocacy groups (ie. chamber of commerce, league of women voters), and even churches or neighborhood associations. In some cases, formalized committees may not exist but significant and important activities may be planned.
