Voter ID cards available on weekends

Tuesday, October 7, 2014 by Mark Richardson

All voters in Texas must now present a photo ID in order cast a ballot on Nov. 4. 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 Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Oct. 11 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. Those who do not have an approved form of ID with a photo (a Texas driver’s license, state-issued personal identification card, Texas concealed handgun license, U.S. passport or military identification, U.S. Citizenship Certificate or Certificate of Naturalization) can go to the DPS and receive the Election Identification Certificate. More information is available on the DPS website.
