Request for Temporary Exemption to Identification Requirements
for Local County Voter Registration Office
Pursuant to Section 65.054 of the Texas Election Code, I hereby submit to the voter registrar my request for an exemption from the
requirement to present at the time of voting a form of identification prescribed by Section 63.0101 of the Texas Election Code. The acceptable
forms of photo identification are, in Section 63.0101(a) of the Texas Election Code, a (1) Texas Driver License (issued by the Texas Department of
Public Safety (“DPS”)); (2) Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS; (3) Texas Personal Identification Card issued by DPS; (4)
Texas Handgun License issued by DPS; (5) United States Military Identification Card containing the person’s photograph; (6) United States
Citizenship Certificate containing the person’s photograph; or (7) United States Passport (book or card). With the exception of the United States
Citizenship Certificate, the identification presented for voter qualification at the polling place must be current or, for voters aged 18-69, have expired no
more than 4 years before it is presented. A person 70 years of age or older may use a form of identification listed above that has expired if the
identification is otherwise valid. The acceptable forms of supporting identification in Section 63.0101(b) of the Texas Election Code, which
may be used by voters who do not possess and cannot reasonably obtain an acceptable form of photo identification listed in Section
63.0101(a) of the Texas Election Code, and execute a Reasonable Impediment Declaration, are a copy or original of one of the following:
(1) a government document that shows the voter’s name and an address, including the voter’s voter registration certificate; ( 2)
current utility bill; (3) bank statement; (4) government check; (5) paycheck; or (6)(a) a certified domestic (from a U.S. state or
territory) birth certificate or (b) a document confirming birth admissible in a court of law which establishes the voter’s identity
(which may include a foreign birth document).
Below I have provided my reason for requesting an exemption. I understand that I will have to make this request for each election for which I fail to
comply with the identification procedures referenced in Section 63.001(b) of the Texas Election Code, if applicable.
