Who Counts? The Promise and Peril of the 2020 Census
With Penelope Hamblin

The 2020 Census is a high-stakes endeavor with very significant political and economic consequences for Maine. We’ll talk about next year’s Census and why it’s so important, how the data is used, and how it will roll out in 2020. We’ll also talk about some special threats to an accurate count this year and what we can do – what the League is doing – to help ensure a complete count.
Penelope Hamblin is a semi-retired public librarian and Census nerd. She heads the Census Complete Count Committee of the League of Women Voters of Maine. Penelope also serves on the League’s state Board of Directors. She lives in South Portland with her husband, Willis. For fun, she researches Maine history, visits old cemeteries, and plays old-time music on fiddle, banjo and ukulele. 

Saturday, February 8, 12:00 noon 
Moore Community Center, 125 State St., Ellsworth
