It’s time to become a Volunteer Deputy Registrar, qualifying you to register voters in Travis County.
The Travis County Tax Office is looking to train new volunteers and renew training for those with experience for registering voters.
The one-hour training class is being offered at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 7, at the Travis County Tax Office, 5501 Airport Blvd. Registration is not required.
Volunteer Deputy Registrars help citizens register to vote, promote voter registration at community events and within social networks, distribute voter registration applications and confirm that applications are completed correctly, issue an official receipt as proof of registration, and deliver applications to the Voter Registrar within five days of completion.
Volunteers that train in 2017 can remain active deputy registrars until Jan. 1, 2019. State law requires Volunteer Deputy Registrars to attend the one-hour training course every two years.
The deadline to register for the May 6, 2017 General Election is Thursday, April 6.
