County moves to secure voting centers

Monday, August 17, 2020 by Tai Moses

With the Nov. 3 presidential election just around the corner and record voter turnout expected in Travis County, the Travis County Elections Division is asking the community to pitch in and volunteer their spaces “to make sure voters can exercise their right to vote safely and conveniently.” A record number of voting centers and poll workers are needed to handle the expected turnout. Travis County Clerk Dana DeBeauvoir “is asking anyone who owns or manages a facility that has a room that’s at least 1,500 square feet, is up to code under the Americans with Disabilities Act, and has accessible parking and wide hallways, to consider using their facility as a voting center this Nov. 3,” according to a press release. Large rooms are especially needed. If your facility checks all those boxes and you’d like to volunteer it as a voting center, go to and fill out the interest form by Aug. 21. Community members are also needed to volunteer as poll workers. Learn more and sign up here. Watch this brief message from DeBeauvoir.
