DPS to open for Voter ID Cards

Tuesday, October 21, 2014 by Mark Richardson
Despite a federal court ruling that overturned the Texas Voter ID law, another court has ruled that it will remain in effect for the Nov. 4 elections. All voters in Texas must present a photo ID in order cast a ballot. For those who do not have a driver’s license or other form of approved ID, the Texas Department of Public Safety is issuing an Election Identification Certificate, a free photo ID that can only be used for voting. The DPS will keep several driver’s license offices operating on Saturdays before the election to issue the certificates. In Travis County, four area offices will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays through Nov. 8: the North Lamar office, 6121 North Lamar Blvd.; the Northwest office, 13730 Research Blvd.; the South office, 6425 Interstate 35 South, No. 180; and the Pflugerville Mega Center, 216 E. Wells Branch Parkway, Pflugerville. More information is available on the DPS website.
