Austin Community College faculty and staff are invited to attend voter registrar training Friday, September 25, from 10:30 a.m. to noon at Highland Business Center Room 301. Travis County Tax Assessor Bruce Elfant will lead the session.
A volunteer deputy voter registrar distributes, reviews, and accepts completed voter registration applications and applications from voters wanting to change or update their information. Volunteer registrars serve two-year terms that expire December 31 of even-numbered years.
The session is free and participants can earn professional development credit. Sign up through the Workshops & Event Registration webpage.
Volunteer registrars must be at least 18 years old, a U.S. citizen, and a Texas resident. Volunteers must not have been:
- Determined by a final judgment of a court exercising probate jurisdiction to be (1) totally mentally incapacitated or (2) partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote;
- Convicted of failing to deliver a voter application to a voter registrar;
- Convicted of a felony or, if so convicted, must have fully discharged the sentence, including any term of incarceration, parole, or supervision, or completed a period of probation ordered by any court; or be pardoned or otherwise released from the resulting disability to vote; or
- Convicted of identity theft under Section 32.51 of the Penal Code.
