The Supreme Court upheld a lower court’s ruling in the final days of June that keeps the citizenship question off of the 2020 Census.

There’s growing concern that the lack of high-speed internet access among low income urban and rural households, immigrants, and other minority populations might leave them undercounted in the upcoming census.  That’ll be the focus of a summit Wednesday hosted by the Central New York Digital Inclusion Coalition.  Co-chair and director of the LaFayette Public Library Scott Kushner says the census bureau will start by sending postcards that direct residents to a website.
