The agreement says that in addition to the forms of ID permitted by the voter ID law, registered Texas voters will also be able to show a valid voter registration certificate, a certified birth certificate, a current utility bill, a bank statement, a government check, a paycheck, or any other government document that displays the voter’s name and address, as long as they sign a declaration saying that they had a reasonable impediment to attaining the types of ID allowed by the 2011 law.

The agreement also says election officials are prohibited from questioning voters about their reasonable impediment claims, while requiring that the state implement a training and educational program for the new procedures.
