WHERE TO VOTE

What I.D. Do You Need?

  • Bring one of the following with you to your polling place:

    • TX Driver’s License issued by the Department of Public Safety

    • TX Personal ID card issued by the Department of Public Safety

    • TX concealed handgun license issued by the Department of Public Safety

    • TX Election ID Certificate issued by the Department of Public Safety

    • US military ID card with your photo

    • US Certificate of Citizenship or US Certificate of Naturalization with your photo

    • US passport book or card

  • These photo IDs must be current or have expired no more than 4 years before you vote.

 

No Photo ID? You Can Still Vote!

  • I’m a registered voter, but don’t have a photo ID. Now what?

    • You can still vote a regular ballot by:

      • Signing a declaration stating

        • 1) you are who you say you are at the voting booth

        • 2) have a reasonable impediment or difficulty for having an accepted photo ID

        • 3) provide: 

          • A valid voter registration certificate or 

          • A certified birth certificate (must be an original) or

          •  A copy or original of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or

          • A government document with your name and an address thereon (a government document with your photo must be original)

Know Your Rights!

  • Your name as printed on your ID does not need to exactly match your name as it appears on the registration rolls. As long as the two versions of your name are substantially similar, you will be allowed to vote on a regular ballot.

  • ·Your address as printed on your ID does not need to match your address as it appears on the registration rolls. Even if these addresses are completely different, you will be allowed to vote on a regular ballot.

  • If you have a documented disability or religious objection to being photographed, you can apply for an exemption from the photo ID requirement at your local registrar’s office.

Need an ID?

If you don’t have one of the accepted IDs, you can get a free Election ID Certificate from your nearest Department of Public Safety Office, or at one of the Secretary of State’s mobile ID stations.

 

In order to get a free Election ID Certificate, you’ll need to bring documentation with you to verify your identity and to show that you are a U.S. citizen. Most people need an original birth certificate plus two supporting documents.

 

If you don’t have your birth certificate, you can get one from a Vital Records Office for free (if you go in person and tell them you need a birth certificate for voting), or online for $22.
