    Early voting for state constitutional amendments begins Monday, Oct. 21, and runs through Friday, Nov. 1.

    “Early voting is a way for Texas voters to cast a ballot at a time and location that may be more convenient than waiting for Election Day,” said Secretary of State John Steen. “It’s one more way Texans can participate in the process and make their mark on Texas.”
    This will be the first statewide election with photo ID requirement in effect for in-person voting.
    The seven forms of approved ID are:
    •Texas drivers license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety
    •Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS
    •Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
    •Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS
    •U.S. military identification card containing the person’s photograph
    •U.S. citizenship certificate containing the person’s photograph
    •U.S. 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 at the polling place. Information about obtaining an election identification certificate is available at the DPS website, www.dps.texas.gov.
    The Nov. 5 statewide ballot consists of nine proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution.
