Houston's Proposition 1 Ballot Language
Proposition 1: [Relating to the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance.]
Are you in favor of the Houston Equal RightsOrdinance, Ord. No. 2014-530, which prohibits discrimination in city employment and city services, city contracts, public accommodations, private employment, and housing based on an individual's sex, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, age, familial status, marital status, military status, religion, disability, sexual orientation, genetic information, gender identity, or pregnancy?
There are three Proposition 1's on the ballot this year. A Yes vote on Houston's Proposition 1 is a vote to protect our city's equal rights ordinance.
While only some voters can vote by mail, all eligible voters can vote early in person, starting October 19th. Voting early is convenient and once you vote, you’ll help our campaign best target our resources by focusing on Houstonians who haven’t voted yet.
Casting your early Yes vote on Proposition 1 is one of the surest ways you can help protect Houston’s Equal Rights Ordinance. Find your early voting location using the map below or click here to visit Harris County's website for the most up to date locations.

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.
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.
