AUSTIN -- You won't be able to cast your ballot in Texas this November without a valid government issued photo ID.
Travis County estimates thousands of would-be voters may not have the proper documents. Although there are seven different types of ID cards you can use to vote, they may be expired or have names that don't match your registration card.
To prevent any problems Travis County is launching a campaign so you can get it all sorted out in the weeks before election day.
The centerpiece of the effort is the website KeepCalmVoteOn.com. It has all the information about what you need to vote, how to get it and where to go to cast your ballot. Travis County Clerk Dana DeBeauvoir says in some zip codes more than 2,400 voters may not be ready to cast their ballots.
"We want to target students and seniors, folks with disabilities and people who have difficulty driving, who don't have a car and may have difficulty getting to a DPS office. Folks like that and people who just haven't pulled out the pieces of ID to say 'Am I a match?'" DeBeauvoir said.
Another part of the campaign includes mobile information stations the county is setting up during the first week of October. Those locations can help voters get an Election Identification Certificate. It can serve as a photo ID on election day. You can also visit several local Department of Public Safety offices to get those certificates.
