You’ll Need Photo ID

When you go to vote, you’ll need to take an unexpired government-issued photo identification. If you have an unexpired Texas Driver’s License, you’re all set. If you don’t, here’s a list of other acceptable forms of photo ID (source):

  • Texas driver license—unexpired or expired less than 60 days — issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS).

  • Texas personal identification card issued by DPS—unexpired or expired less than 60 days.

  • Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS—unexpired or expired less than 60 days.

  • United States military identification card containing the person’s photograph - unexpired or expired less than 60 days.

  • United States citizenship certificate containing the person’s photograph.

  • United States passport—unexpired or expired less than 60 days.

  • Texas Election Identification Certificate (EIC) with the person’s photograph issued by DPS.
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 the Texas Department of Public Safety website.

Didn’t Texas’s voter ID just get struck down in court?!

Yes, but the law is still in effect for now! Texas is appealing the decision, and that will take time. So in order to vote YES on Prop 1, you’ll still need your government issued photo ID.
