Texas voter ID requirements

With record numbers of voters casting ballots early for the November 6th General Election, here’s a reminder about the types of approved photo id needed to vote in Texas. According to the Texas Secretary of State’s Office, voters need to bring with them acceptable forms of id. That includes a current Texas driver's license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety or a Texas election ID certificate; Texas personal ID card; Texas handgun license; US military ID with photo; US citizenship certificate with photograph or a US passport. Any registered voter without a photo id and who cannot obtain one due to a reasonable impediment, will need to sign a sworn statement at the voting box that there is a valid reason why they don't have any of the accepted IDs, and present any one of the following documents instead – an original certified birth certificate, a valid voter registration certificate; or a current utility bill, government check, bank statement or paycheck, or government document with your name and an address. If you meet these requirements, you will be able to vote. Even without those documents, voters may still be able to cast what are called provisional ballots. In the event a voter does not have photo ID and does not have a reasonable impediment to obtaining one, or for whatever reason did not bring ID to the polling place, can cast a provisional ballot. In order to have the provisional ballot counted, you will be required to visit the local voter registrar's office within six calendar days of the date of the election to either present one of the forms of photo ID or submit a temporary affidavit in the presence of the county voter registrar while attesting to the fact that you do not have any of the required photo IDs. Photo ID is required to vote early or on Election Day Tuesday November 6th. If you have questions about voter id or any other voting question, call the Liberty County Clerk’s Office at 936 336 4670.
