AUSTIN -- Early voting for the November election began Monday in Texas.

Nine constitutional amendments are on the ballot this year, including one concerning the future of Central Texas' water supply.

Proposition 6 asks voters' permission to take $2 billion from the state's Rainy Day Fund. A new study suggests the fund could reach $20 billion by 2020.

In the City of Austin, voting for Proposition 1 would approve a $65 million bond package. Supporters say it will create more affordable housing and provide home repair help to senior citizens and people with disabilities.

Voters in Texas House District 50 will also be able to vote on the seat vacated by Mark Strama.

For this year's election you must have a state issued identification card. For a list of the IDs accepted at the voting booths go here.

Voters can cast their ballots at any polling place in their county until November 1. Find voting sites.

Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 5.
