To get your vote in next season there is a long list of acceptable forms of Ids that elections officials will accept -- U.S. passports, military IDs, Texas drivers licenses, Texas ID cards or Texas concealed handgun licenses. Many options but there are still a few people who don't have those IDs and the state is working in Webb County this week in their effort to make sure voters don't fall through the cracks. “There are instances where persons who don't have any of those and now the law requires them to show one of those forms of ID, so this project that is going on right now will make it easier for them to apply for one of those cards,” said Oscar Villareal, elections administrator of the Webb County elections office. They're setting up twelve mobile sites, with not much more than a laptop, digital camera and printer. But that's where voters can go to prove they're eligible and go home with what they need to cast their vote. For their part the Webb County elections office is also helping they volunteered to send a representative to each site to keep track of voter registration and get new voters registered. Today between these four sites, the elections office knows of just one voter who applied. So depending on why you think that is, either everyone is already signed up, or come election day some people will be expressing themselves but not at the polls.
