Illinois Complete Count Commission
Why a complete count is important to Illinois
According to the Illinois Complete Count Commission, Illinois was undercounted in the 2010 Census with only 76% participation rate. The ramifications for undercounting in Illinois in the 2020 Census include:
- Loss of one and possibly two seats in the House of Representatives.
- Loss of one and possibly two Electoral College votes.
- Forfeiture of billions of dollars of federal assistance for programs that aid children, veterans, senior citizens, middle and low income families, schools, healthcare facilities, and infrastructure.
