What You Should Bring
Do you need to bring a photo ID in Texas?
Yes, voters are required to present valid photo ID
Acceptable forms of photo ID (current ornot expired for more than 4 years):
- TX Driver License issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety
- TX Personal Identification Card issued by DPS
- TX Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS
- TX Handgun License issued by DPS
- US Military Identification Card containing the person’s photograph
- US Citizenship Certificate containing the person’s photograph
- US Passport (book or card)
If a voter has, but fails to present valid photo ID, they may vote a provisional ballot and bring the acceptable form of photo
ID or completing a natural disaster affidavit because the voter’s acceptable photo ID is inaccessible due to certain natural disasters, with the county voter registrar, within 6 days to cure their ballot (or return to the polling place with the acceptable form of photo ID before the polls close on Election Day and vote then).
If a voter doesn’t possess the required identification, poll workers must ask them whether they “cannot obtain an acceptable form of ID.” If the voter answers yes, they can present a non-photo form of identification and complete a “Reasonable Impediment Declaration”.
Pledge to Vote
We believe if more young people vote and advocate civically for public policies that reflect their values,we can advance policies that better the lives of all Houstonians.
If you agree, join GenHTX and pledge to bring youth power to the polls in November.
