The Rice chapter of American Association of University Women (AAUW) will be hosting a voter registrar training here on campus in conjunction with the Center for Civic Leadership and representatives from the Tax Assessors office who will conduct the training.
Who: Anyone is welcome to join! Students, faculty, staff, community members--you do NOT have to be a Texas resident in order to become a trained registrar in Harris County.
What: VDVR (Volunteer Deputy Voter Registrar) trainings take about an hour to complete. Within 2-3 weeks you will recieve your registrar card and you can begin registering voters within Harris County! The process is simple but can have a huge impact on getting Houstonians to the polls for the upcoming mid term elections.
Where: On campus; exact space TBD
When: September 7th
Why: Texas is consistently ranked among the lowest in the nation for voter turnout.
AAUW will be collaborating again with the CCL to host a voter registration drive and celebration of National Voter Registration Day, September 26th! Details forthcoming.
