An EIC mobile station will be in El Paso County Wednesday, May 14, 2014 at Bassett Place located at 6101 Gateway West, El Paso, Texas 79925 from 10:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m. and Thursday, May 15, 2014 at the El Paso County Courthouse located at 500 E. San Antonio, 1st Floor, El Paso, Texas 79901 from 10:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m. to issue Election Identification Certificates (EICs).
Election Identification Certificates are available without charge to qualified Texas voters who do not already have an approved form of photo ID, which is now required for voting in person.
Applicants for an EIC would normally would need to travel to a Department of Public Safety in order to get an EIC, but this mobile station will provide improved opportunity to get an EIC closer to home. Only EICs will be issued from this mobile unit.
Many Texans already have an approved form of ID and will not need or qualify for an EIC. Acceptable forms of ID in addition to an EIC are:
- Texas driver license issued by DPS
- Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
- Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS
- United States military identification card containing the person’s photograph
- United States citizenship certificate containing the person’s photograph
- United States passport
Applicants for an EIC will need to present proof of citizenship and identity. For most applicants that means a birth certificate and two forms of supporting identification. A complete list of identification requirements are available at:
