I voted!

October 21st, 2014 by Matt Marxer
Yesterday I went to vote. Nothing fancy, no big crowds, just me, tired and dusty after a long day at campaign headquarters.
I was determined as Chairwoman of the Tarrant County Democratic Party to vote on the first day. I saw it as a sacred duty to lead by example. What I experienced not only made my day but reminded me why I do this job every day.
Yesterday, I met first time voter Octavia. She was there with her mother and her excitement at voting for the first time lit up the entire room. She was ready to cast her ballot and she did. I stood there like I was her proud parent because knowing that a beautiful young woman understood the importance of voting makes the work I do so worthwhile. Seeing her enthusiasm put a spring in my step and a glint in my eye.
So I’m going back to work now to call folks to get to the polls, to put up a few more yard signs, knowing that I’m working for all the Octavias of the world.
I would love it if you would commit to vote this year too. Voicing your political voice through casting a ballot is so important. If I can count on you to vote this year, click here.

The Tarrant County Voter Registration Committee is looking for deputy registrars!

August 19th, 2014 by Matt Marxer
Hello friend,
Do you have a passion for registering voters?
National Voter Registration Day is on September 23rd this year, and now is a great time to get involved with the Tarrant County Voter Registration Committee!  The committee is looking for more deputy registrars to register voters and identify potential locations for registration drives.
National Voter Registration Day is celebrated all across the country every year in late September, and is backed by numerous celebrities and organizations all across the country. Each year, tens of thousands of eligible voters are registered on this day, and we want to make sure the day is a success here in Tarrant County too!
Deputy registrars are responsible for passing out and collecting voter registration cards, as well as for holding voter registration drives to make sure that as many eligible voters are possible are registered to vote. This job is indescribably important, and it’s essential we have as many deputy registrars as we possibly can!
The Voter Registration Committee has worked tirelessly to ensure that everyone is guaranteed their constitutional right to vote, and recently, all of their efforts were awarded!
In June, the Tarrant County Voter Registration Committee was the recipient of the prestigious Community Engaged for Excellence Award of Appreciation by the Arlington Independent School District for their ongoing work in registering high school students to vote, and for making sure that all voices are heard in elections in Tarrant County!

Between November 2013 and April 2014, the committee was responsible for registering many school students in the AISD to vote, and with your help, they can continue to register many more!


Members of the Voter Registration Committee were awarded the Community Engaged for Excellence Award of Appreciation by the Arlington Independent School District for their success in registering Arlington high school students to vote.

With the help of people like you, the committee will be able to expand their outreach, and set up many more voter registration drives all over Tarrant County!

The Voter Registration Committee and the Tarrant County Democratic Party are counting on people like you to make sure that voters are correctly registered for the November election, and we hope that you’ll help us out!
