The League of Women Voters-Wilco will hold two “curbside” voter registration events at which Williamson County residents can register while remaining in their cars.
The events are scheduled for:

  • Friday, September 18, 5-7 p.m. at Igo Elementary, 1601 C.R. 314, Jarrell

Saturday, September 19, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at San Gabriel Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 1322 E. University Ave., Georgetown

“Empowering voters is a tenet of the LWV at all levels — national, state and local,” Chris Spano, LWV-Wilco president said. “In a democracy, our vote is our voice, and the first step in voting is to get registered.”
Ms. Spano said the current pandemic has driven people inside and they may pass this year on getting registered to vote.
The curbside events, she said, have been designed for safety.
“We will be socially-distanced and LWV workers will be masked. Just drive up and we’ll give you a registration card that you can fill out in your car and hand back.”
Ms. Spano said trained and certified VDRs — Volunteer Deputy Registrars — will conduct the registrations.

  • Individuals are eligible to register to vote if they are:
  • A United States citizen
  • A resident of the county where the application is submitted
  • At least 17 years and 10 months of age
  • Not a convicted felon (unless they have completed a sentence including any incarceration, probation, or parole)

They have not been declared by a court exercising probate jurisdiction to be either totally mentally incapacitated or partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote.

The deadline to register for the November 2020 election is Oct. 5.
The League of Women Voters-Wilco was established in 2019. Information about the chapter can be found at www.lwvwilco.org.
