Acceptable forms of identification include–a driver’s license or personal identification card issued by DPS, a form of identification with photograph establishing identity like an employee identification card, a birth certificate, citizenship papers, a U-S passport, official mail addressed to the person from a government agency–a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other document that shows the name and address of the voter–or any other form of identification presented by the Secretary of State’s office.
