UPDATE: Williamson County Elections Administrator Rick Barron says early-voting supervisors are being reminded of all the legally acceptable forms for voter identification, including the utility bill option.
Texas voters are not required to show a photo-ID. But that’s not stopping folks in Williamson County, a Republican bastion north of Austin. Or at least hasn’t stopped them in my precinct. I showed up to early-vote this weekend with one of several legally sanctioned forms of identification — my local utility bill. That’s when the trouble started.
