Volunteer Registrar

By definition, a volunteer is a person who enters into something of his own free will with no promise of compensation. However, there are those who believe that it is by spending ourselves that we become rich.

    Margaret Mead commended the volunteer spirit when she said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed it is the only thing that ever has.” At Travis County, we applaud our volunteers. They raise the production, participation, and enthusiasm in the voting arena. They set an example of selflessness, motivating others with their dedication to this valuable process. Volunteer Deputy Registrars help demonstrate how “Everyone Counts in Travis County!”

What is a VDR?

    Volunteer Deputy Registrars are people who volunteer to serve and assist in registering eligible citizens to vote. They serve for two-year terms expiring on December 31 of even-numbered years.
    They assist by distributing, reviewing, and accepting completed registration applications.
    They provide an official receipt to each applicant.
    They faithfully turn in all Voter Registration Applications they collect quickly and reliably to the Voter Registrar for processing.
    And, for the purpose of determining the effective date of registration, the date of submission of a completed registration application to a Volunteer Deputy Registrar is considered to be the date of submission to the registrar.
