Texas now requires voters to show photo ID at the polls. IDs that can be accepted include: one of four Texas Department of Public Safety-issued photo IDs (driver’s license, personal ID card, concealed handgun license or election identification certificate) or one of three United States government issued photo IDs (passport, military ID card, U.S. citizenship or naturalization certificate).
The photo ID must be current or expired no more than 60 days. Other photo IDs, including student IDs and employment IDs, cannot be accepted at the polls.
On the ballot
On the ballot are nine amendments to the Texas Constitution, placed in random order by Texas Secretary of State John Steen. Most Parker County residents will vote solely on the amendments, but others will also vote on additions to Emergency Service District No. 3 and ESD No. 7, as well as on bond elections in the Azle and Granbury school districts.
