Census 'Anomalies' Could Thwart Trump's Bid To Alter Next Electoral College

Census anomalies may alter Dec. deadlineThe  U.S. Census Bureau has uncovered routine "anomalies" in the results of this year's national count that may force the bureau to miss a legal reporting deadline. That outcome could thwart President Trump's unprecedented attempt to change who is counted in numbers that determine each state's share of congressional seats and Electoral College votes for the next decade.

"These types of processing anomalies have occurred in past censuses," the bureau's director, Steven Dillingham, said in a statement released Thursday. "I am directing the Census Bureau to utilize all resources available to resolve this as expeditiously as possible."

The first set of census results — the latest state population counts — is due to the president by Dec. 31 after the bureau reviews all of the information it has collected to try to spot and fix any errors.
