Campaign continues to raise awareness of 2020 Census in Joliet, Crest Hill

Author: Editor

Local efforts to raise awareness about the 2020 U.S. Census are in full swing as groups work to educate the public on the importance of getting counted.

Community organizations and government officials have focused on informing residents about the census, especially in undercounted areas.

Data from the 2010 U.S. Census showed parts of Crest Hill and Joliet, specifically the near west side by the Des Plaines River and in and around the downtown area, qualified as “hard-to-count.” That means 73%, or fewer, of residents in those areas responded to the census that year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

The Real Vote Fraud

Author: Editor

Many years ago, as a college Republican, I spent one summer in Austin working for a candidate in a special election for the Texas senate. My hometown was a liberal enclave with many college students -- unwashed, longhaired, pot-smoking students, it seemed to me -- who were predominantly Democrats. The more students who came out to vote the less likely our candidate was to win.

But our campaign strategists came up with a plan. They sent mailings to all the registered voters in precincts near the campus. Many cards came back because the addressee had moved, as college students often do. Voters no longer at the address on file with election authorities were not eligible to vote.
