HOUSTON [Sept. 17, 2015] – Houston Community College (HCC) is committed to doing its part for National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, September 22. HCC has teamed up with Neighborhood Centers Inc. to provide Harris County residents an easy and efficient way to register to vote.

A deputy voter registrar will be on hand at the West Loop Campus on September 22 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and then from 4 to 7 p.m. to assist in the registration process.
