Do I need to provide ID when I vote by absentee ballot in Texas

If you are a first time voter and you did not put your drivers license number or Social Security number on your voter registration form then you must include a copy of one of the following forms of Photo ID with your absentee ballot application:a first time voter and you did not put your drivers license number or Social Security number on your voter registration formPhoto ID
