    What to Watch for on Texas Primary Election Day

    Tuesday is primary election day in Texas, and voters are making their way to the polls. Some of the most heated primary races in the state will be decided. Gromer Jeffers, political reporter for The Dallas Morning News, discusses some of the top races. (Published Tuesday, March 6, 2018)

    Tuesday is Election Day across Texas. Here's the information you need to cast your ballot before the polls close.

    Due to an appeals court decision in 2017 that Texas' voter ID law discriminated against minorities and the poor, the state was forced to change the law ahead of the November 2017 election. Instead of requiring voters to show one of seven forms of suitable ID -- a list that included concealed handgun permits, but not college IDs -- the state will now let those without such an ID to sign a Reasonable Impediment Declaration allowing them to cast a regular full ballot. Supporting forms of identification will also be accepted if the voter does not have another form of ID or if they are unable to obtain one.
