As households throughout the United States prepare to fill out the 2020 Census, Evanston residents are invited to submit their Census online during Census Night at Evanston Township High School on Tuesday, March 31. The event will take place in the Welcome Center (E112) from 6:00-8:30pm. 


This year, households will have the opportunity to complete the Census online, in addition to completing it by phone or by mail. To help increase access to electronic devices, Chromebooks will be available at the event for residents to fill out the Census digitally. Trained staff members from the City of Evanston will also be present to help address questions. 


Each household throughout the country will start to receive invitations from the U.S. Census Bureau in mid-March. Evanston residents are encouraged to bring this document with them as it contains a Census ID code required to complete the Census online. The Census ID code is unique to each household. 


ETHS is located at 1600 Dodge Ave., Evanston, 60201. The Welcome Center is wheelchair accessible. Parking is available in the lot across from the main entrance, off of Dodge Avenue, or in the lots behind the high school. Parking is also available along Dodge Avenue according to posted City of Evanston signs.
