As Texans head out to the polls Tuesday, they'll have nine Constitutional amendments to weigh in on and voters in the state's 50th district will also choose a new state representative.
"The water issue has a lot of people's attention on the state ballot, and locally, state representative district 50 is adding to the total turnout," Travis County Clerk Dana DeBeauvoir said.
Voters cast their ballots in significantly higher numbers during the early voting period than in past off-year elections, and election officials want to keep that trend going on Election Day—despite the new Voter ID requirement.
"This is the first statewide election where we have photo ID requirements, so we just want people to be aware of that and be ready when they go to the polls," Texas’ Secretary of State John Steen.
Steen has been touring Texas to make sure voters are aware of the changes.
But if you can't find or don't have an ID come Tuesday, you can still cast a provisional ballot.
“You'll have up to close of business one week after the election, the following Tuesday, to provide us with an ID so that ballot will count,” DeBeauvoir said.
Election officials are hoping the weather doesn't deter people from voting. They want to remind Travis County voters that if your polling location is hard to get to because of traffic or flooding, you can vote at any polling center within the county.
Polling locations will be open from 7 am to 7 pm Tuesday.
