The acceptable form of photo identification may be expired up to four years. Voters who do not possess an acceptable form of photo identification and cannot obtain one of the forms of acceptable photo identification listed below due to a reasonable impediment, may present a supporting form of identification and execute a Reasonable Impediment Declaration, noting the voter’s reasonable impediment to obtaining an acceptable form of photo identification, and stating that the voter is the same person on the presented supporting form of identification.

Here is a list of the acceptable forms of photo ID:

  • Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
  • Texas license to carry a handgun issued by DPS
  • United States military identification card containing the person’s photograph

With the exception of the U.S. citizenship certificate, the identification must be current or have expired no more than 4 years before being presented for voter qualification at the polling place.

Here is a list of the supporting forms of ID that can be presented if the voter does not possess one of the forms of acceptable photo ID and cannot obtain one due to a reasonable impediment:

Early Voting


Many Texans vote early. Texas enables residents to vote in the days and weeks before an election to make the voting process more convenient and accessible. There are two ways to vote early: by showing up in person during the prescribed early voting period or by voting by mail.

To vote early in person - Early voting in person will begin the 18th day before Election Day (if that’s a weekend, early voting starts on Monday) and ends the 4th day before Election Day.  Early voting is held in the Brown County Elections Office.  All other voting rules and procedures apply – e.g., eligibility, identification.

You may vote early by mail if:

  • You will be away from your county on Election Day and during early voting;
  • You are sick or disabled;
  • You are 65 years of age or older on Election Day; or
  • You are confined in jail, but eligible to vote.

You can get a formal application for a ballot by mail from our office, or the Secretary of State’s Office or Download an application for a ballot by mail here.

We can accept an application in person directly from the individual voter only before early voting begins.  You may also send in your application for a ballot by mail by regular mail; or by common or contract carrier.

Military and Overseas citizens should use the Federal Postcard Application (FPCA).

Note: You do not have to use a formal application; however, an informal application must be in writing and include:

  • your signature (or a witness’ signature if you cannot sign);
  • your name and the address at which you are registered to vote;
  • the address to which the ballot is to be mailed;
  • the election date and for which election you are requesting a ballot (for a primary election, you must state the political party’s primary in which you wish to vote); and,
  • a reason why you are eligible to vote early by mail (to be eligible to vote early due to a planned absence from the county, your application must state an address out-of-county to have your ballot mailed).

Your ballot by mail application must be sent to our office if Brown County is the county in which you are registered to vote.  Applications must be received (not postmarked) by last day of the application period. All applications to vote by mail must be received in our office no later than 5:00 p.m. Applications to vote by mail must be submitted by mail, common or contract carrier, or fax.
