AUSTIN, TX -- Early voting starts this week for the March 1 Texas primary election, and Harris County has released its list of polling locations.

Texas Secretary of State Carlos Casco says early voting begins Tuesday and runs through Feb. 26.

Casco says Texans can cast their ballots at any early voting location in the county where they are registered.

Voters must present one of seven acceptable forms of photo identification, including a Texas driver's license.

Other forms of approved ID are a Texas election identification certificate, a personal identification card or a concealed handgun license - all issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The other acceptable forms of photo identification are a U.S. military ID, a U.S. citizenship certificate or a U.S. passport.

The general election is Nov. 8.
