Voting in elections is an important way to participate in our democracy, yet many people in Hays County remain unregistered to vote.

***Bring a brown bag lunch to the library, and become a deputized voter registrar on your lunch break!***

Once you are deputized, sign up for one of our volunteer events as coordinated by the League of Women's Voters, or organize a voter registration campaign of your own.

In this program, we will utilize the Texas Secretary of State's approved training material. Staff from the Hays County Elections Office will be on site to administer the test and give out the certificate of appointment and supply packet.

Volunteer Deputy Registrars 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.

To be appointed a volunteer deputy registrar, a person must:

be at least 18 years old;
be a United States citizen;
not have been determined by a final judgment of a court exercising probate jurisdiction to be totally mentally incapacitated, or
partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote;
never have been convicted of failing to deliver a voter application to a voter registrar; not have been finally convicted of a felony, or, if 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 been pardoned or otherwise released from the resulting disability to vote; not have been finally convicted of identity theft under Section 32.51 of the Penal Code; and be a resident of the State of Texas.

You can also become a voter registrar by studying the packet on your own, and going to the Hays County Government Center. The center is open 8 AM - 5 PM, Monday through Friday, at the following location:

Hays County Government Center
712 South Stagecoach Trail
Suite 1012
San Marcos, TX 78666-5999
Monday, Sep. 10, 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.
