Volunteer Deputy Registrar Certification Training 2021-2022
Happy New Year and Welcome Back!
We are excited to announce the return of the Volunteer Deputy Registrar Training Program.
*** Due to Covid-19 restrictions, in order to ensure everyone’s safety, the following 3 options are available at this time to become a Volunteer Deputy Voter Registrar in Bexar County:
Option 1 - Virtual Training via Zoom Meetings
Beginning July 6, 2021 the Virtual training will be every Tuesday at 9:00 AM, and additional training offered the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM, class limit 25 participants. Please click here for the registration form. Participants must individually register with a valid email address. Upon completion of the virtual training, the registered participant will have until Friday of that week by 5:00 PM to pick up your certificate, VDR Packet, and take the VDR oath. Please bring a valid TDL or ID.
- Only one (1) passcode will be issued per email per person to attend the virtual meeting. The Bexar County Election staff will issue only one (1) certificate and packet per email per training for that week subject to verification.
- If you fail to pick up your packet by 5:00 PM on Friday, you are not a VDR and cannot register anyone to vote. You will have to retake the training.
Option 2 - In person
Beginning January 12, 2021 in person training will be the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM, class limit 25 participants. Please call the Bexar County Elections Department to register (210-335-6625). Only those who registered with the Bexar County Elections Office gain access to the class.
Option 3 - Online
