Constitutional Amendment Election - November 5, 2013

Early Voting October 21-November 1

At this election, we will be implementing the new law requiring voters to present photo identification. In addition to your voter’s registration card, acceptable forms of ID include:

    *Texas Driver’s License *Texas Personal ID Certificate issued by DPS *Texas Election ID Certificate issued by DPS *Texas Concealed Handgun License issued by DPS *United States military ID card containing person’s photograph *United States Citizenship certificate containing person’s photograph *United States passport

Please check to see that the name on your voter’s registration card matches the name on the photo identification that you will be presenting. The law now requires that the names on these 2 documents match. If they don’t, please request a new voter’s registration card at the Sheriff’s Office.

Early Voting AND ELECTION DAY VOTINGWILL BE AT THE COURTHOUSE (not at individual precinct polling places). Eligible voters can request a ballot by mail and we offer curbside voting for disabled voters.

If you have any questions, please call the County Clerk’s office and we will be happy to help you.
