The Kewanee League of Women Voters Census 2020 Informational Meeting is tonight at the Kewanee Public Library beginning at 6:30 Pm. The featured speaker will be Anita Banerji from Forefront and she will discuss the relevant issues about making sure that you get counted in the 2020 census with a specific focus on why getting counted in the census is essential for Illinois residents. So much federal support to a state is based on population and with rumors of heavy population loss in the state, making sure that as many residents get counted as possible is urgently important.
