As Americans every ten years we get to fill out a census. You mail it in. You don't have to think about again for another decade. It's a short and sweet process, but not for a Wrightsville Beach resident who received a follow-up visit Wednesday afternoon from a census bureau worker.
Dorothy Pastis told WWAY she told the census worker "I don't need to talk to you because I've already sent it in." The worker said: " This is special. We're having to do this. We need your name and number."
It turns out Dorothy Pastis received a follow visit because she's included in a small percentage of Americans who will receive follow-up visits. Tony Osticco, the office manager for the Wilmington Census Bureau Office says it's all part of a double check procedure. He also says it's quality control.
