Governor Perry Cast Early Voting Ballot

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Gov. Rick Perry says he cast a ballot without any problems in the first Texas elections under a new voter ID law.

Perry said Wednesday he only presented his driver's license at an Austin public library. Voters are weighing nine proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution, including one backed by Perry that would spend $2 billion for new water projects.

The new voter ID law is affecting two candidates vying to replace Perry in 2014. Democrat Wendy Davis signed an affidavit at the polls this week because the names on her driver's license and voter registration card are slightly different.

A spokesman for Republican Greg Abbott says the attorney general will also need to sign an affidavit because of minor variations between his driver's license and the voter rolls.
