How To Vote, When To Vote?
What do you need to vote in person?
One of seven forms of ID will get you into a voting booth:
◆ Texas driver's license
◆ Texas election identification certificate (EIC) issued by the Department of Public Safety
◆ Texas personal ID card issued by DPS
◆ Texas handgun license issued by DPS
◆ U.S. citizenship certificate containing your photograph
◆ U.S. military ID card containing your photograph
◆ U.S. passport, book or card
What if you don't have one of the seven acceptable forms of voter ID?
The state lists other forms of identification, like a utility bill or birth certificate, that you can use to vote if you don't "possess an acceptable form of photo identification, and cannot reasonably obtain one."
In addition to presenting that secondary form of ID, you'll also need to fill out a "Reasonable Impediment Declaration" form.
What if you're a voter with special needs?
A person of your choice or an election worker can assist you at the polls — but the person cannot be your employer or someone who represents your employer, or an officer or representative of your union.
If you're physically unable to enter the polling location, you can vote curbside. Send someone into the polling location to request an election worker meet you at the curb. If you're planning on arriving alone, call ahead to your county's elections office.
