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

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!

Can you help us get your neighbors to the polls this November?

Dear friend,
Just a few days ago we celebrated Wendy’s one year Filibuster. Yesterday, the Texas Democratic Party finished up the state convention in Dallas, and Wendy and Leticia have officially accepted the nomination for Governor and Lieutenant Governor!It is an exciting time to be a Democrat!

This November, we have the opportunity to take back Texas from over two decades of Republican rule. It’s not going to happen if we don’t get our voters to the polls.
From the Chairman of the Texas Democratic Party to Wendy and Leticia, the idea that Texas is not a red state but a non-voting state has been echoed continuously.
The more we have examined the data, it becomes increasingly clear that Tarrant could be a blue county.
The Democrats are here in Tarrant County, my friend! All over Tarrant County, there are registered sporadic voters who have historically voted for Democrats. These registered voters rarely vote, but when they do, they vote Democratic.If we get these voters back to the polls this November, we will take back Tarrant County.We are prepared to bring these sporadic Democratic voters back to the polls in November; our organizers and interns are working hard to make this happen!

These voters, your neighbors, are all around Tarrant County. We must get them to the polls!
Yes, they will need a little picking, prodding and persuading to get them to vote, and this is where we need you!Will you help us get them to the polls?It is going to take thousands of phone calls and door knocks to achieve this goal, and we can do it, but not without you!

Can we count you in?

If you can’t help by volunteering, any financial donation also helps our staffers and interns get our message out! If you would like to donate, please click this link. Every dollar helps!We will be printing out many more call lists and addresses of sporadic voters which calls for boxes and boxes of paper. We will also be mass printing our coordinated campaign fliers to leave at your neighbors’ doors.It is an effort worth supporting!

Wendy said it best at the convention. . .

“We can come together to fight for our promise. We can come together to summon our dreams.

We can come together … uniting with common purpose and shared values to affirm our future, to build our tomorrow. And when we do that, we will win.”


Whether you are able to  volunteer or contribute, we need your help to get these voters back to the polls!

Help us get them there and let us win this November!

Dreaming of a blue Tarrant County,
Deborah Peoples
