Seasonal homeowners should respond to the 2020 Census

The census counts people where they live and sleep most of the time. If you are a seasonal homeowner or resident, we need your help to ensure an accurate and efficient count by responding to the 2020 Census for your seasonal home at my2020census.gov. How can our population be shrinking when we have over 750 registered voters that claim Edisto Beach as their permanent residence to obtain a 4% tax status?

 For any property you own but usually do not live or sleep most of the time, follow the instructions below to minimize the need for a census taker to follow up. ​
