New procedure to appoint Volunteer Deputy Registrars in Williamson County: This procedure allows a person wanting to be appointed as a VDR in Williamson County to review training materials (PDF) and examination (PDF) questions on our website. After reviewing the training materials and examination questions, an appointment to take the examination at our office must be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Appointments will be offered on Tuesday during regular business hours (8am-5pm). Examinations are conducted at our offices located at 301 SE Inner Loop, Ste. 104 in Georgetown. No exams will be administered during the Early Voting period or on Election Day.
Upon satisfactory completion of the examination, we will appoint the person as a volunteer deputy registrar and advise of any county-specific procedures for completing the duties of a volunteer deputy registrar.
Once you have completed your formal training, you will be issued a Certificate of Appointment and given a registration packet with instructions and supplies.
