Get Out The Vote

Become a Volunteer Deputy Registrar

Voter Registration is the first step to get people to the polls to exercise their constitutional rights.

Many of the members of the League of Women Voters are Volunteer Deputy Registrars (VDRs).

VDRs are entrusted with registering voters face-to-face either at events or by going door to door.  VDRs make sure people are eligible, registered, and educated to vote.

If you want to be trained and authorized to be a VDR in Travis County, it is really quite simple.  Every month, Travis County hosts several one-hour VDR training sessions:

Third Thursday of every month
starting at 10:30 am, 12:30 pm, and 6:30 pm

Travis County Voter Registrar’s office
4705 Heflin Ln, Austin, TX 78721  and 5501 Airport Blvd, Austin, TX 78751
