DPS offices open Saturdays for voter ID cards
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Nearly 50 Department of Public Safety offices across Texas will open on Saturdays to issue election identification certificates ahead of voting in November.
The agency announced Friday that the extended hours are only for those who need an ID in order to vote on Nov. 5. The offices will not transact any other business.
Texas will hold a referendum on proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution. It will be the first statewide election where officials will enforce a law requiring voters to produce a photo ID card to vote.
Election judges will accept driver's licenses, concealed handgun licenses, U.S. passports, military IDs or naturalization certificates with a photo. Anyone who does not have one of those documents may apply for a free election ID on Saturdays thru Nov. 2.
