Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan reminds citizens that the last day to register to vote is right around the corner. The deadline to register to vote for the 2014 Primary Election is February 3, 2014.
“Registering to vote is incredibly simple,” said Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan. “You can find all the necessary forms to register to vote on my website at www.hcvoter.net or by visiting a Tax Assessor-Collector branch location. Voter registration applications must be received by my office or postmarked by February 3, 2014 for the applicant to be eligible to vote in the 2014 Primary Election.”
“Two weeks ago, we sent out new voter registration certificates,” said Mr. Sullivan. “The certificates reflect the voter’s current name and address, just as it appears in the poll book when they go to vote. Residents should check their current voter registration information and ensure it is accurate.”
If the voter registration certificate is not correct, you can update the following information through www.hcvoter.net:
In addition, the Voter Registration Department has expanded the Volunteer Deputy Voter Registrar (VDVR) program and has been very proactive in getting more people registered to vote. “Last year, we worked with more than 30 community organizations to assist in voter registration drives and train 1,261 VDVR’s to register voters,” said Mr. Sullivan. “Those efforts have led to more than 1.9 million registered voters; an increase over the past years.”
Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan also serves as the Harris County Voter Registrar, which conducts voter registration activities and maintains a certified list of registered voters. Learn more about voter registration and the requirements by visiting www.hcvoter.net.
