Texas's new Voter ID Law is changing what you need for this November 2013 Election Day.

This election voters will be required to show an approved government-issued photo identification.

There are seven forms of acceptable identification:
  • Texas driver license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
  • Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS
  • Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
  • Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS
  • United States military identification card containing the person’s photograph
  • United States citizenship certificate containing the person’s photograph
  • United States passport

  • If you do not have the required photo identification you will be allowed to fill out a provisional ballot but would need to show proof of identification to elections officials within six days.

    For more information on the voter identification requirements you can visit the Texas Secretary of State's website.
