Walker County Tax Assessor-Collector and Voter Registrar Diana McCrae says, “Helping citizens register to vote is a rewarding activity that makes a real impact on our community.”
You can help citizens register to vote by becoming a Volunteer Deputy Registrar. Volunteer Deputy Registrars (VDR) promote voter registration most commonly at community events and within their own social networks. They distribute voter registration applications, and while the applicant is still present, review the application for completeness. They also provide a receipt to show proof of registration and deliver applications to the Voter Registrar within 5 days of completion.
To volunteer, you must be 18 years old or older and must attend the required training session. During training, you will review the qualifications to become a VDR, learn how to register voters correctly, and be officially sworn-in.
The Walker County Voter Registration Department is holding training classes from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the Walker County Annex Room 101 on June 12th, July 17th, August 14th, and September 18th.
Space is limited. If you are interested and would like more information, call 436-4959, or come by the Annex Room 114, or go on the web at www.co.walker.tx.us and select Tax A/C, then Voter Registration Department.
