Travis County Tax Assessor
Voter Registrar Launches U+2 Campaign
Friday, August 10, 2012 at 10 a.m. Travis County Tax Assessor-Collector and Voter Registrar Tina Morton will launch a new campaign to register voters for the November 6, 2012 Presidential Election. Morton will be speaking at the ‘Go Vote’ Kickoff being held in the parking lot of the Travis County Tax Office at 5501 Airport Blvd. With just over 600,000 registered voters, Travis County has the highest percentage (77%) among major metropolitan cities in Texas. The deadline to register to vote is October 9, 2012.
“Our goal is to reach 650,000 registered voters by the end of September. We are challenging Travis County citizens to register themselves and help two other people register to vote at the same time. By acting now rather than waiting until the deadline, voters will have their certificate well in advance of Election Day,” said Travis County Tax Assessor-Collector and Voter Registrar, Tina Morton. “Participating in U +2 is as easy as including a link to a voter registration application in a text, tweet, Facebook post or email.”
If you are new to Travis County or you have moved since the last time you voted, you must update your voter registration record by the deadline. Travis County voters can review their current voter registration record online at www.traviscountytax.org, or contact the Voter Registrar's office by telephone at (512) 854-9473.
