Today is the last day to be counted in the 2010 Census, and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa urged all Angelenos to sign up before time runs out. He said it was critical to have an accurate accounting of the city's population so that Angelenos can get their fair share from the federal government.
The census determines the amount of federal funding directed to local governments, and the number of representatives that each state sends to Washington. Villaraigosa urged Angelenos to spread the word about the census to everyone they know.
People who need to a census form may get it by calling the Census Bureau at (866) 872-6868. Lines are open until 9 tonight. The forms are available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and Russian.
