There are many ways for people to register to vote. You may visit the Elections Office and complete an application or we can mail you an application. You can renew your driver’s license or Texas Identification Card and request a voter registration application either when visiting the Driver’s License Office or online. You may be offered an application to register if you use one of the social service agencies of the state. You will get an application to register if you obtain your marriage license in this state.

You might think that would be enough but there are still people working and living in this county who are not registered to vote. So we have another way to get you on the voter registration rolls and that is through the efforts of volunteer deputy registrars.

The title says it all. A volunteer is appointed by the voter registrar to offer voter registration at any place the volunteer feels potential un-registered citizens might gather. It doesn’t make a difference whether there are two people, ten people, a hundred people or even just one person.

There are several requirements to becoming a volunteer deputy registrar. First you must complete and sign a certificate and the certificate must be co-signed by the voter registrar or one of their deputies. The volunteer must understand the requirements of voter registration and be able to assist individuals with correctly completing the voter registration application. The volunteer will provide a receipt to the registrant and deliver the completed application to the voter registrar within 5 days of its being submitted.

The deadline for registering to vote is 30 days prior to each election. If a volunteer accepts a voter registration application over the last days prior to the deadline, he or she must deliver the applications within 24 hours of the deadline.

If you would like to become a volunteer deputy registrar you can complete the certificate online at vctx.org/elections and follow the links through Voter Registration and Volunteer Deputy.
