I've got a dilemma.
I live in Harris county. My drivers license expired in April. I have to go in person to renew. No appointments are available anywhere near me until after election day. What do I do in this situation? Will I be allowed to vote since they require a valid ID? Any help or answers on this will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
Hard to ID you via mail. And should be able to drop it off at local election office if mail is an issue.
My two cents.
It could be anyone asking to vote. Any age. Any country. Would you be satisfied to have this level of security for your bank?
You do realize only registered voters get ballots, dont you? And to get registered you have to jump several hoops including identification? You dont get a mail in ballot without prior process being followed.
to another address, and casts your vote. You get registered to vote by showing your Id. You show your Id when you vote to prove you are the registrant.
But it is easy to build the process to prevent that scenario. And it is built and working in several states already. I know as I have used the process in WA and it works.
Anyway, you do you and take your Id to the poll to cast your ballot. I will be voting by mail. And we can both drink to throwing the Republican Anarcho-Fascists out the effing door.
If not call your registrar too and see what the details are. Provisions? Options?
Or be willing to drive a little further to one that does have an appointment.
I go to the DPS office in Hempstead instead of fighting the crowds locally. If there's a line, it moves quickly.
Do you have an alternate ID such as a passport? Good luck.
bank cards, credit cardsall with your name on them. You might even bring the notification from the DMV that your appointment for renewal is after election day.
to my SO (in Missouri), so all was well, the license bureau finally opened back up, and the SO got to renew their license. Easy.

2. My acceptable photo ID is expired. Will it still work?
With the exception of the U.S. Citizenship Certificate, which does not expire, for voters aged 18-69, the acceptable photo identification must be current or have expired no more than 4 years before being presented for voter qualification at the polling place. For voters aged 70 or older, the acceptable form of photo identification may be expired for any length of time if the identification is otherwise valid.
