You Must Have A Valid ID To Vote This Year
It’s voting season in Texas. In fact, we’re only one week away from Super Tuesday. In order to vote this year, you must have an approved ID. Read to find out what IDs are legal.
People in Texas are typically passionate about voting and making their voices heard. That’s why there was a huge turnout to early voting and will probably be a swarm at the polls on Super Tuesday.
(PSA: Super Tuesday is March 1st, when the Texas primary takes place)
