Becoming a Project Orange volunteer is a two-step process.
  • First, prospective volunteers must complete the Travis County Sheriff’s Office TCSO Jail Access Application.

    Applications take approximately 3 weeks to process.

    The completed application and a copy of your drivers license can be scanned and emailed to Tiffany Taylor at [email protected]

    Or sent by USPS to:

    Del Valle Correctional Complex.
    Attn.: Tiffany Taylor/HSB Programs
    3614 Bill Price Rd.
    Del Valle, TX 78617

  • Second, you need to get certified as a Volunteer Deputy Registrar (VDR) for Travis County.

    Click here to find available dates and times for the one-hour training. VDRs who are deputized in other counties may become Travis County VDRs without retaking the training. We encourage VDRs for Williamson and Hays counties to volunteer for Project Orange.

  • Then, you will be ready to volunteer.

    • Bring ONLY your keys, photo ID and a clipboard when you arrive.
    • VDRs assemble at 12:15 PM in the reception area of the Travis County Correctional Complex. You’ll go through security upon arrival. Bring ONLY your keys and photo ID when you arrive. Be sure to memorize your VDR number!
    • Present your ID at the check-in window, sign in, and receive a visitor badge.
    • VDRs will go as a group to the jail pods to register eligible voters. Voter registration applications and pens are provided.
    • The registration period is 12:30 PM – 2:30 PM during each session.
