» NEW IDENTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR VOTING:
In 2011, the Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 14 (SB 14) creating a new requirement for voters to show
photo identification when voting in person. While pending review within the judicial system, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its opinion in Shelby County v. Holder, which effectively ended all pending litigation. As a
result, voters are now required to present an approved form of photo identification in order to vote in all Texas Elections.
Here is a list of the acceptable forms of photo ID:
This requirement is effective immediately.
- 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 persons photograph
- United States citizenship certificate containing the persons 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 for voter qualification at the polling place.
