6 Keys for Positive Change

Show up – if you don’t show up, nothing happens. Be there. Trust that your presence matters and can make a difference.

Speak up – Use your voice. Say what needs to be said. Ask the questions that need to be asked. Shape the agenda. Re-frame issues and give new perspectives.

Look up – Have a higher vision, bring values to the team. Know what you stand for. Elevate people out of the weeds and to a bigger picture of why our work is important.

Team up – Everything goes better with partners. Don’t try to do it alone. Build a sense of partnership.

Never give up – Persist until done. Everything looks like a failure in the middle. It will take longer than you imagine, keep going anyway. Be flexible in your approach, but inflexible in your persistence.

Lift others up – Share success, share credit and give back once you have a success.

Consider becoming a Volunteer Deputy Registrar to officially register citizens to vote!  Attend just one two-hour training session and be sworn in as a VDR through the end of 2020.  Yes, that's through the 2020 national election! 

The Kerr County Elections Department will be offering Volunteer Deputy Registrar Training in the next several months, as follows:

  • Wednesday, July 17, from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, August 21, from 3:00-5:00 p.m.

If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Deputy Registrar, please contact the Elections Department at 830-792-2242 to sign up for one of the sessions. 

To become a VDR in another Texas county please contact your county Elections Department.  People must register to vote in the county where they reside.
