Folly Beach lagging in Census response 

Get off the beach and fill out that form

It would appear that the people of Folly Beach are too busy voting to fill out their brief U.S. Census mailer.

The accounting of Lowcountry residents is particularly important this year because a solid count, showing a substantial population increase over 2000, should provide a seventh S.C. congressional district, along the coast.

The Census offers a daily accounting of completed mailers that have been returned. As of April 9, South Carolina's participation rate was at 65 percent and most Lowcountry communities were participating at a similar rate. Mt. Pleasant was leading with 71 percent.

But the one area not pulling its weight appears to be Folly Beach, with a horrible 41 percent mailer participation rate. We'd never hope for rainy weather, but something has to get these guys off the beach so they can get to the post office.
