So far so good for Ector County Elections Administrator Mitzi Sheible, too.
"I'm very pleased," Sheible said. "I'm always pleased when it goes nice and smooth and there's no problems."
Elections are running smoothly and exceeding expectations on voter turnout.
"This year we have exceeded our 2011 turnout for early voting," Sheible said, "so that's a positive thing."
Statewide, in the first five days of early voting, 139,205 people cast ballots.
Compare that to the last constitutional amendment election in 2011 when 59,095 people voted in the first week.
Before you vote you'll need one of the sever approved IDs. Those include a Texas driver license, personal ID card, concealed handgun license or election identification certificate - all issued by DPS. Also accepted are a U.S. passport, citizenship certificate or a military photo ID.
Election officials say the purpose of the Voter ID law is to crack down on voter fraud.
But it's not without controversy.
David Rosen, the chairman of the Midland County Democratic party, said, "Quite honestly I think it was done by the legislature to suppress voting."
Will Hailer, the Executive Director of the Texas Democratic Party, agrees.
"I think the Secretary of State today really has it wrong," Hailer said Monday.
One of Hailer's concerns is that only a limited number of DPS offices are open on Saturdays to issue election identification certificates.
"It's a real accessibility issue across the state even here in Midland-Odessa to make sure people can get an EIC if they don't have any other form of ID," Hailer said.
Secretary Steen reports DPS has issued about 50 EIC's statewide. Twenty more are in process. DPS has received nearly one thousand inquiries about the election identification certificates.
"We need to have policies across the state that make voting easier for people because it's our constitutional right to be able to do that," Hailer argued. "Unfortunately, Republicans in Austin just continue to make it harder and harder on seniors, on women, on communities of color and we need to change that."
Secretary Steen points back to the numbers.
"We're more than doubling the voter turnout right now so that might tell you something about whether this is inhibiting voter turnout," Steen said.
"It's the law of Texas and I'm trying to get everybody to work together to make sure it goes as smooth as possible."
