And here are the new ID requirements provided by the Texas Secretary of State:

The Texas Constitutional Amendment election will be Tuesday, Nov. 5.

A voter will be required to show one of the following forms of photo identification at the polling location before the voter will be permitted to cast a vote:

  • 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

With the exception of the U.S. citizenship certificate, the identification must be current or have expired no more than 60 days before being presented at the polling place.

Election identification certificates are now available only for voters who do not already have a required form of photo identification. There is no fee for the certificate. Information on how to obtain an election identification certificate can be found at www.dps.texas.gov. You may also contact DPS by telephone at (512) 424-2600.

The Nov. 5 statewide ballot consists of nine proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution. Voters may also see a number of local initiatives and races on the ballot. Voters in State House District 50 will vote in a special election for state representative.

For complete information about where and when to vote, and for information on photo ID requirements, please visit www.votetexas.gov.
