DALLAS (AP) - State law requiring voters to show picture identification is causing some hiccups at early-voting locations around Texas.
The Dallas Morning News reports that rules requiring that a voter's name on IDs exactly match that listed in voter registration databases are especially problematic.
Some Texans participating in early voting ahead of the Nov. 5 election have complained.
State officials say that if names are "substantially similar," a voter can immediately sign an affidavit verifying his or her identity, and then vote.
Another option is casting a provisional ballot, then providing supporting information later.
The law was approved in 2011 but didn't take effect until recently because of legal challenges.
