Voters have to present one of the seven acceptable forms of photo ID when voting in person:
- 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 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 (book or card)
Voters 18-69 years old can present one of these photo IDs even if it is expired, but no more than four years past the expiration date. Voters 70+ years old can present one of these photo IDs even if it is expired, no matter when the ID expired. U.S. Citizenship Certificates do not expire.
Voters who do not possess and cannot obtain one of these forms of photo ID may fill out a Reasonable Impediment Declaration (RID) at a Vote Center and present another form of ID, such as a utility bill, bank statement, government check, or voter registration certificate.
