DPS Offers Saturday Hours For Election IDs

Sep 13, 2013

If you need to get an ID so you can vote in the next election, the Texas Department of Public Safety is opening some offices on Saturdays to make it easier.

DPS is offering Saturday hours at nearly 50 driver license offices across the state as part of an ongoing effort to provide Election Identification Certificates to Texans in need of proper identification required to vote in elections in the state.

Select offices will be open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. now through Nov. 2 to allow residents to apply for EICs only. No other transactions will be conducted during the Saturday business hours. 

In addition to the Saturday hours, applicants can apply for an EIC at all Texas driver license offices during regular business hours Monday through Friday.

Most residents already have an acceptable form of photo identification needed for voting and will not need or qualify for an EIC.
