Acceptable Identification

At this time, proper valid identification is not required to register  to vote but a voter must show one of the following forms of photo identification at the polling location before the voter may be accepted for voting during Early Voting and on Election Day:

    Texas Driver's License issued by the Department of Public Safety (DPS)
    Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS
    Texas Personal Identification Card issued by DPS
    Texas Concealed Handgun License issued by DPS
    United States Military Identification Card containing the person's photograph
    United States Citizenship Certificate containing the person's photograph
    United States Passport

If you do not have a valid form of photo identification, you may apply for a free election identification card at your local Texas Department of Public Safety office.

Exemption:

Voters with a disability may apply with the county voter registrar for a permanent exemption.  The application must contain written documentation from either the US Social Security Administration evidencing the applicant's disability, or from the US  Department of Veterans Affairs evidencing a disability rating of at least 50 percent.  In addition, the applicant must state that he or she has no valid form of photo identification.  Those who obtain a disability exemption will be allowed to vote by presenting a voter registration certificate reflecting the exemption.

Provisional Voting:

If voters do not present one of the forms of photo identification listed above and do not have a permanent disability exemption indicated on their voter registration certificates, voters may cast a provisional ballot at the polls and will have six (6) calendar days after election day to present a valid form of photo identification in the presence of the county voter registrar.  Voter's who have a consistent religious objection to being photographed and voters who do not have any photo identification as a result of certain natural disasters as declared by the President of the United States or the Texas Governor, may vote a provisional ballot, and if they appear at the voter registrar's office within six (6) calendar days after election day and sign an affidavit swearing to the religious objection or natural disaster, then their ballot will be counted.
