Voter ID legislation passes in the House

Released by The Office of Chuck Hopson:

AUSTIN, TX (KLTV) – After years of fighting for measures which would restore Texans' faith in the voting process, House members joined together to overwhelmingly pass mandatory Voter Photo ID legislation on Thursday.

"I do not believe this significant achievement could have been accomplished without the continued support of citizens from across this state," says Hopson. "When the Governor signs SB 14 into law, we can once again have faith in the voting process."

The House version of SB 14 requires voters to present one of the following photo identifications to vote

Texas Drivers License

Texas Personal Identification Card

United States Military Identification Card

United States Citizenship Certificate

United State Passport
