[Ed. – Don’t worry; it’s all cool. “Deputy registrars” come to your home to register you. Nothing could go wrong.]
Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s (D-Texas) voter mobilization organization launched a new voter registration tool on Thursday, days after the Texas legislature approved a controversial elections overhaul bill that many say will restrict access to the ballot box.
The group, Powered by People, launched the “Drive-to-You” program, an on-demand voter registration service that will allow eligible Texas voters to register to vote from their homes.
According to a press release from the organization, any Texas voter in an eligible county will be able to call a phone number and deploy a team of volunteer deputy registrars to their home, workplace or any other location to help them register to vote.
