UPDATE: all positions filled, and many with some good local Republicans. Thank you!
Election Judges, Alternate Judges, and Clerks are wanted for the May 4 election! Can you help?
While the news media is already focussed on the 2020 presidential election, we cannot overlook our LOCAL elections. The next one is scheduled for Saturday, May 4, 2019 (with early voting beginning the day after Easter, April 22 and ending April 30).
Since it is a non-partisan election, Travis GOP may not automatically place workers, but the Travis County Elections Division usually works with us to place our workers (yes, you do get paid!). If you'd like to help please let us know.
Below is an update on this year's elections from the Travis County Clerk's office:
>>Welcome to the 2019 election season.

Important for Election Day Judges – ALL Election Day workers are now required to take in-person training. We will need the Judges to provide us with their CLERKS names- so that we can schedule them for a class. The Judges will have 3 days to provide the Clerks. If we have not received these names with the 3 days, will fill those CLERK Positions.
