UPSHUR COUNTY reminds Voters photo ID is
Gilmer TX ĖElection Administrator Lory Harle reminds voters that photo identification will now be required for voting in person
ďIn Upshur County we are working to make sure our voters understand the new ID requirements and have
all the information they need to cast their ballots."
A voter will be required to show one of the following forms of photo identification at the polling location
before the voter will be permitted to cast a vote:
Texas driver license issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS
Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS
United States military identification card containing the personís photograph
United States citizenship certificate containing the personís photograph
United States passport
With the exception of the U.S. citizenship certificate, the identification must be current or have expired no
more than 60 days before being presented at the polling place.
This photo ID requirement is for voters casting a ballot in person, not by mail. Voters age 65 and older
may vote by mail.
Election officials are encouraging voters to update their voter registrations to reflect the names on their
IDs. Voters may use IDs that do not exactly match the name on their IDs if the names are substantially
similar but will have to sign an affidavit stating they are the same person. Voters may look up their
registration at votetexas.gov and if their name is not an exact match they can update their voter
registration online at votetexas.gov.
To check and update their registrations, voters can visitVoteTexas.gov or Voter Registrarís office or call
903-680-8506 for more information.
