Early voting begins Tuesday, Feb. 18 and runs for 10 days until Feb. 28. Photo identification is required to vote -- including a Texas driver's license, Texas election identification certificate, Texas ID card, Texas handgun license, U.S. Military ID with photo, U.S. citizenship certificate with photo and a U.S. passport (book or card).
If a voter does not possess an acceptable form of photo ID and the voter cannot reasonably obtain such ID, the voter may still cast a regular ballot by presenting a supporting form of ID and executing a Reasonable Impediment Declaration. More information on valid voter ID can be found here (question number 3 and 4) at VoteTexas.gov.
