Voting Rules

Do I need a government-issued ID?

Voters who possess a government-issued ID, should bring it to the polling place. Those acceptable forms of identification are: a Texas driver license, a Texas Election Identification Certificate, a Texas personal identification card, a Texas handgun license a U.S. military ID card with the person’s photograph, a U.S. citizenship certificate with the person’s photograph or a U.S. passport. Voters who don’t have one of those seven types of IDs must sign a declaration indicating why they couldn’t acquire one, such as a lack of transportation, disability, illness, work schedule or theft. They can then show a voter registration certificate, birth certificate, current utility bill, bank statement, government check or any other government document that includes a voter’s name and address.

Can I bring my cell phone with me into the voting booth?

No. Voters are allowed to bring a printed voter’s guide or notes they’ve taken on paper but they are not permitted to bring their cell phones within 100 feet of a polling place. (Signs typically instruct voters to simply turn off their phones while in a polling place.

Can I wear clothing that features campaign slogans?

No. This includes buttons, hats, bags or other items that endorse or promote a particular candidate or cause. Even politically charged Halloween costumes will not be permitted, Pierce said. “You might be asked to change or come back at a later time.”

Can I bring my gun (with the appropriate license)?

No. Even if a polling place is inside of a building where concealed carry normally would be permitted, guns are not allowed within 100 feet of a polling location.

Can I vote outside of the county where I live?

Maybe. You may vote a “limited ballot” if you were registered in Texas but moved to a different county and your registration will not be effective by Election Day. Limited ballots only feature races that would have appeared on ballots in both counties, for example statewide races and the presidential race.

Is anyone allowed to enter the voting booth with me?

Yes. Voters may bring someone to assist them or ask election workers for help, but the person offering assistance must take an oath promising not to attempt to influence your vote and to accurately mark your choices on the ballot. If a voter cannot speak English, they can request assistance to help communicate with election officials or bring someone to assist them.

Can I take a picture inside a polling place?

No.
