Volunteer Deputy Registrars Needed

Whether you prefer to vote in person or by mail, you must be registered. Currently, Volunteer Deputy Registrars are needed to help get Texans registered to vote in the upcoming election.

The Dallas County Voter Registrar is looking for volunteer deputy registrars to assist with the upcoming election.

According to Dallas County Elections, “Volunteer Deputy Registrars (VDR) are entrusted with the responsibility of officially registering voters in the State of Texas. They are appointed by county voter registrars and charged with helping increase voter registration in the state. Acceptance of the duties of volunteer deputy registrar places you in a position of trust and responsibility to the citizens you will register to vote.”

The first step to becoming a VDR is contacting your county voter registrar to obtain the details about upcoming training sessions.

After completing the training, “the voter registrar will appoint you as a volunteer deputy registrar and advise you of any county-specific procedures for processing voter registration applications and that the only requirements for voter registration are those prescribed by state law or by the Secretary of State.”

Once appointed as a volunteer deputy registrar, you may pursue getting voters registered. A volunteer deputy registrar’s term expires on Dec. 31 of 2022.

Voter registration applications can be distributed to U.S. citizens who will be age 18 by Election Day, must not be convicted of a felony and/or completed felony punishment, and may not be deemed legally mentally incapacitated.

Registration is underway for VDRs throughout Dallas County. If you have any questions on the VDR program, email or call 214-819-6346.
