Register To Vote!

Do you, or anyone you know, need to get registered to vote? Do you need to update your address on your voter registration? There is an online tool that can make the process much simpler: Register2Vote.

Texas is one of a dozen states without online voter registration. Texans can request an application online but the rest of the process is by paper forms and it can be confusing. The Register2Vote site streamlines registration in easy steps:

Step 1 – Click here: https://register2vote.org/ to fill out and submit the required information for your voter registration application. For the Texas Primary run-off election, do this step by June 8 to allow time for mailing in the application.

Step 2 Register2Vote will check if you are registered at your current address. If not, you will be sent an application that is mostly filled out with the information you entered.

Step 3 – All you have to do is sign the application, put it into the accompanying postage-paid envelope pre-addressed to your county registrar and drop it in the mail.

Step 4 – You should get your voter registration card in the mail.

Step 5 – To vote by mail in Travis County, print the application form at https://countyclerk.traviscountytx.gov/images/pre/pdf_tc_elections_ABBM_2018.pdf Fill out the form and sign it, send to County Clerk Dana DeBeauvoir, P.O. Box 149325, Austin 78714-9325.

Help Families in Our Community!

There are families living in the SRCC area who are struggling to buy food and basic necessities. Travis Heights Elementary School is working to support families with students attending the school who are having financial difficulties during the COVID-19 pandemic. The PTA is organizing a virtual fundraiser on Friday, May 15. It is an annual tradition for the school to celebrate the end of the year by having a party in the Oak Garden at Guero’s, who have been a great supporter of the school for many years. We can’t have the T-Bird Fiesta in person, but we are encouraging folks to order dinner to-go from Guero’s to support them and thank them (and we’ll be hosting a virtual dance party online for the students!). We are also asking that those of us in our community who can, please make a donation to help the families in need in our neighborhood and school community. You can make a donation to the school via the website:

 https://www.travisheightselementary.com/donate/

All donations received on May 15 will be used by the school’s Parent Support Specialist to support school families in need.

We also encourage donations to the Central Texas Food Bank, which is doing great work to support all of Central Texas.
