You will need to bring one of seven acceptable forms of photo ID when you vote. Those are:
A Texas driver’s license.
A Texas election identification certificate.
A personal ID card.
A Texas license to carry a handgun.
A U.S. military ID card.
A U.S. citizenship certificate.
A U.S. passport.
If you don’t have one of the seven forms of ID, you can still vote. You will have to sign a form that states you have a “reasonable impediment” from getting the required identification, according to the Texas Secretary of State.
The form will be available at each polling location.
The state outlines a reasonable impediment as being a lack of transportation, disability, illness, family responsibilities, work schedule, lost or stolen ID, have not received a photo ID, or a lack of a birth certificate or other documents needed to obtain an acceptable form of ID.
