Texas Candidates Will Need Affadavit to Vote

Both Wendy Davis (D) and Greg Abbot (R) will have to attest to their identities in order to vote in next year's gubernatorial race, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

That's because both candidates have a different name on their drivers license than that on the voter rolls. Although Davis opposed the law, an amendment she sponsored is what actually allows both to vote since their recorded names only differ slightly.

Said a Davis spokesman: "If it weren't for Wendy Davis' leadership, Greg Abbott might have nearly disenfranchised himself."
