(Spanish)

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is offering Saturday hours at nearly 50 driver license offices in order to issue more Election Identification Certificates (EIC).

Saturday hours will provide additional opportunities for voters who do not already have an approved photo ID to get an Election Identification Certificate in time for the election on Nov. 5, 2013.

Select DPS offices, including the Grand Prairie DPS Office at 550 S. Carrier Parkway, will be open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through Nov. 2, 2013. During these hours, only Election Identification Certificates will be available. (No driver license transactions or any other transactions will be conducted during these Saturday business hours.) EICs are also available during normal operating hours Monday – Friday.
