Almost three quarters of Texas voters are unaware that a government-issued photo identification is not required* to vote in this general election, according to a Univ. of Houston Hobby School of Public Affairs poll. About 44% of all voters believe it is required, and another 29% “don’t know” whether or not one is required.

Although the state has a voter ID law, a panel of federal appellate judges struck down portions of the law and a federal district judge ordered remedies to permit voters without photo IDs to cast ballots. The poll indicates voters are confused as to whether a photo ID is required. That requirement* differs based on whether the voter has one of the required IDs.
