The success of the Nelsonville census recount will depend on the community mobilizing around the issue! #RECOUNTNELSONVILLE

The Ohio Secretary announced that Nelsonville would transition to become a village after the 2020 census showed Nelsonville’s population at only 4,612.

However, Nelsonville officials expressed confidence that Nelsonville’s population is well above the threshold of 5,000 residents needed to qualify as a city and could potentially be as high as 6,000. Nelsonville officials cited Athens County’s 62.5 percent response rate to the census as a reason to recount the census.

When the community stands up and responds strongly to the recount, it’s in the bag.

Unlike the original census count, only names and addresses will be collected for the Nelsonville recount.
