Election Identification Certificates (EICs) will be available from mobile stations throughout Hidalgo County beginning Wednesday, October 16 for a week.

EICs are available without charge to qualified Texas voters who do not have an approved form of photo ID, which is now required for voting in person. The November 5th Election will be the first statewide election with photo ID requirements in effect.

Many Texans already have an approved form of ID to vote such as:

  • Texas driver license issued by DPS
  • Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
  • Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS
  • United States military identification card containing the person’s photograph
  • United States citizenship certificate containing the person’s photograph
