As a Williamson County Volunteer Deputy Registrar can I accept applications for voters living in other counties?

No. Volunteer deputy registrar status is conferred on a county-by-county basis. To accept applications for Y or Z counties, you would have to become a volunteer deputy registrar for those counties. You could certainly give applications to the attendees from County Y and County Z and direct them to mail the application to the appropriate county voter registrar’s office. Under Section 13.044 of the Texas Election Code, a person commits a Class C misdemeanor by acting as a deputy registrar when he or she does not have an effective appointment as a deputy registrar.
