Election day Tuesday November 5th is now just three weeks away. Harris County is reminding voters they will have to present an acceptable form of photo identification to cast their ballot. But some people can qualify for exemptions.
Justin Concepcion with the Harris County Voter Registrar’s office says most people can use their driver’s license or other acceptable forms of photo I.D. to vote. He says these include “a concealed handgun license, military identification card, citizenship certificate or a passport can be used.”
But Concepcion says disabled citizens and disabled veterans can qualify for a voter I.D. exemption. He says they can do it any number of ways “they can apply directly here at any Harris County Voter Registrar office. They can send it by fax, email or regular postal mail.”
Early voting for the November 5th election begins Monday. Among the important issues on the ballot, voters will decide who will be Houston’s Mayor and the fate of the Astrodome.
