New Texas Voter Law Could Keep YOU From Voting 10/21/13
CBS 7 News
Today is the first day of early voting across the Permian Basin. This year officials are expecting a few bumps in the road with the new Photo ID Senate Bill 14.
When going to cast a ballot, voters must bring in a valid government issued Photo ID that matches the voter registration name. It must not be "significantly different" according to election officials.
This new bill could cause some issues for those with different middle names, hyphenated names, maiden names, and many more according to officials with Una Voz Unida.
If voters do not have a similar name on ID and voter registration, they must fill out an SOR form and bring in the required ID in six days.
