Volunteer deputy registrars
Volunteer deputy registrars help register eligible citizens to vote by distributing, reviewing, and accepting completed voter registration applications. They serve for two-year terms expiring on Dec. 31 of even-numbered years.
Becoming a volunteer deputy registrar is easy. The state requires you attend a one-hour training session. We offer training sessions at 10:30 a.m. on the first Saturday of each month and at 10:30 a.m., 2:30 and 6:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of every month. Additional classes are added as needed. Locations of trainings vary. To find a location and sign up for a training class, visit our Facebook Events page.
Our new Travis County Voter Registration Satellite Office is located at 4705 Heflin Lane, Austin, TX 78721.
Our outreach team is available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, to assist you with questions, supply pick up and application drop off.
