VOTING NOTICE TO VOTERS DISPLACED BY HURRICANE HARVEY
If you were living in a county that was affected by Hurricane Harvey and had to relocate to another county, please know that you can still vote in your home county or the county in which you currently reside. In regards to the voting and residence, the Secretary of State’s office has said that, you are the one who decides what you consider to be home.
You will need to make decisions by certain deadlines, as all regular deadlines are still in place and have not been waived.

A couple of months ago, DRTx received word that the Voc Rehab portion of TWC may not be offering people the option of registering to vote (which they should be doing per the National Voter Registration Act of 1993). We have partnered with the Texas Civil Rights Project (i.e. Beth Stevens) to look into this and try to find people who have received Voc Rehab services through TWC and been denied the option of registering to vote. In our expansive search, I thought perhaps the DPC listserv may know of individuals who experienced this.
