A Different Kind of Roll Call
POSTED 9.20.20

UNITED STATES  – Skaters!  Have you ever gone to a national skate party and your city or state did not get called for roll call?  Or, the song played really didn’t represent where you are from?  Did you wonder who gave the song to the DJ or if the DJ made the decision on what to play?  How did you feel?

Now imagine not having representation in the House of Representative seats, adequate medical care or access, school lunches, funding for schools, new highways and road repair, Head Start, Boys and Girls Clubs, SNAP, fire departments, postal service and more.  When businesses decide where to open, they need the demographics of the community they are serving, they need to know you are there.

Completing the census is just as important as voting!

If you can represent where you live on roll call, why not represent yourself in the place that you live.  Don’t take a chance of not having your song played for the next decade.

Log in and be counted, let your city play your song.  It only takes 10 minutes to be counted for 10 years.  Go to and be counted. The deadline is coming soon.
