"Citizens must present their voting card, plus a current driver's license preferably, which is the most trusted document by us," Oscar Villarreal explained.
Webb County's elections director added that it is also acceptable to present a picture identification provided by Texas' Department of Public Safety.
"This requirement is to reduce the risk of frauds and to avoid that someone who is not registered votes," he said. He also mentioned that under Texas law people cannot be denied the right to vote because they do not have their voting card and an ID, however those votes are not counted on election day.
Villarreal explained that these types of votes are placed in a special box for provisional voters, which means people that could not prove they were the ones on the voting card.
"The best recommendation we can make is for the citizens to take their voting card with them and present a picture ID at the voting booth, that will avoid any problems and delays," he said.
Webb County's electoral registry has 104 thousand 979 registered voters. The primary final election for Webb County will be this coming March 2 nd .
