  • A form of identification that contains your photograph and establishes your identity;
  • A birth certificate or other document confirming birth that is admissible in a court of law and establishes the person’s identity;

For those that have difficulty walking or standing for long periods, Dallas County offers “curbside voting.” This service is available to any voter who has difficulty walking or standing for long periods.  If you have an assistant with you, when you arrive at the location, have them notify the election official at that time. The election official will then bring your ballot to your car outside the polling location. If you do not have an assistant, please call (214)819-6340 ahead to notify the early voting clerk that you want to vote curb side.
