    High school students who are 16 years of age or older now have the opportunity to participate in the electoral process by serving as elections clerks at an Election Day polling place. A student who is at least 16 years of age and who is enrolled in a public or private high school or home school and has the consent of the principal (or parent/legal guardian in charge of education in home school) may serve as an election clerk. The Elections Department must receive written authorization from the student's parent or guardian for the student to serve in the election for which he or she is appointed. Serving as an election clerk is now included in the Texas Education Code’s definition of “excused absence” from school.

    This program is designed to provide students with a greater awareness of the electoral process and the rights and responsibilities of voters. The students will assist their local election officials by filling positions at polling places on Election Day and working under the direction of the polling place presiding judge.
