North Texas – It was a rainy day at the polls, but that was only the least of people’s worries.

The new Voter ID Law, requiring voters to have a photo ID, threw some folks in a tizzy, complicating – and even preventing – folks from marking their ballot.

Now, Dallas did provide a mobile Election Identification Station. In short, a place where you could go to if you don’t have an approved form of photo ID – to get an Election Identification Certificate.

"Well I brought everything, because I wasn't sure,” voter Lenita Davis said.

But for those who lacked the alternative items too – well – it didn’t really help.

So did voters run into any other issues today?

"I'm a former resident of Tarrant County, so the address on my driver’s license has not been updated for Dallas County,” Tim Walker said. So, unfortunately I'm not going to be allowed to vote today … I just should have known in advanced."

"I thought it was fairly simple, I mean it wasn't overly complex,” Lenita Davis said.
