Election identification certificates are now available only for voters who do not already have a required form of photo identification. There is no fee for the certificate.

Senior citizens who are concerned about having to present photo ID to vote in person in the Nov. 5 elections have another option to consider - mail.
People 65 years old or older can apply to vote early by mail so they can avoid having to go to the TX Department of Motor Vehicles to wait in line to either renew their driver's license or get a personal ID card. This also applies to people who are sick or disabled, will be out of the county on Election Day, want to vote or are overseas serving in the military. The new voter ID law does not apply to a mail-in ballot. Anyone who meets the requirements to cast a ballot by mail does not have to have a photo ID. For more information or to request an application to vote by mail, contact the Elections Office at (830) 303-6363.
