In order to encourage voter registration, Texas election law provides for County Voter Registrars to designate individuals to assist in the registration of eligible persons to vote. These individuals are appointed as Volunteer Deputy Registrars and operate under State rules and the supervision of the County Voter Registrar.
To be eligible to serve as a Volunteer Deputy Voter Registrar, you MUST be:
- at least 18 years of age
- a citizen of the United States
- a resident of Texas
See additional rules here at VDVR.
RSVP no later than 48 hours in advance to receive your certificate of appointment on the same day of the VDVR training. If no RSVP is submitted, you can still attend and receive your certificate of appointment by mail within 10 business days after completion.
All participants must arrive on-time and attend the training in its entirety on a first-come, first serve-basis. Trainings are approximately one hour.
