The plaintiffs who brought the voter ID lawsuit have reached an agreement with the State of Texas on the types of voter IDs that will be accepted to vote in the November 8, 2016, General Election. Registered voters who don't have one of the seven specified photo IDs issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety or the U.S. Government will be allowed to use one of the following: voter registration certificate, birth certificate, current utility bill, government check, paycheck, or "any other government document that displays the voter's name and address."
The voter will also need to sign a "reasonable impediment declaration," but will then be permitted to vote using a regular ballot. For details about the accepted voter IDs, visit the Voter ID page of the LWV-Texas website.
