Do you know about the new Texas’ Voter ID law which requires voters to present an approved form of photo identification to vote in person? The law is now in effect and will be in place during the November 5 election. The state of Texas requires voters to present an approved form of photo identification to vote at the polls. To facilitate the voter qualification process when YOU go to the poll, YOU should:
- YOU bring a valid photo ID.
- Make sure YOUR State Approved Photo ID is current; With the exception of the U.S. citizenship certificate, the Photo ID must be unexpired or expired less than 60 days.
- Verify that the name the Voter Registrar has on file for YOU matches the name on one of the State approved Photo IDs. YOU may visit http://txapps.texas.gov/tolapp/sos/SOSACManager to update YOUR “Voter Name and Address”.
- Voters who currently do not have an approved form of photo ID may apply for an Election Identification Certificate (EIC) at no charge with the Department of Public Safety. For more information: Call (512) 424-2600 or visit
