Volunteer Deputy Registrar Program

Thank you for your willingness to participate in our Volunteer Deputy Registrar program. 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. Acceptance of the duties of volunteer deputy registrar places you in a position of trust and responsibility to the citizens you will register to vote.

How to Become a Volunteer Deputy Registrar

Take one of these three steps to become a Volunteer Deputy Registrar: 

1. Take an Exam.

    • Come to our office between the hours of 9 AM – 4 PM to take a test and receive your certification.
    • You can review the training materials and examination on your own time.  After you review the training materials and examination questions, you must appear in person at our office.
    • If you miss more than two questions you will be required to retake the training. Upon satisfactory completion of the examination, we will review any county-specific procedures for completing the duties of a volunteer deputy registrar.

2. If you are already a Volunteer Deputy Registrar with another Texas County, simply come into our office between the hours of 8 AM – 4 PM and show us your current VDR Certificate and we will give you the information you need to become a VDR in Dallas County.

3. Attend a Virtual or In-Person Class.
