Bexar County Passes Photo ID Test

by Elizabeth Ruiz

Bexar County elections officials report no major problems at the polls Tuesday for the first election under the state's new photo ID law.

Elections Administrator Jacque Callanen told 550 KTSA News some voters did have to sign affidavits before casting a ballot because the name on their photo ID did not exactly match the name on the voter registration rolls.

That was the case with several military personnel.

"In the military, they put a middle initial on the ID cards and most of the voter registration cards here have the entire middle name," said Callanen.

Callanen told 550 KTSA News one man refused to show a photo ID at a polling location in the city's South Side, claiming the law is unconstitutional  and when offered a provisional ballot, he rejected it while demanding that he be allowed to vote.
