    Counties are bracing for potential problems.

    "The things that we're finding are a little bit surprising. Fifty percent of our voters have some kind of name issue, small name issue, that's resolved at the polling place. We didn't think it was going to be that high," said Travis County Clerk, Dana DeBeauvoir.

    This is the first election since a new state law went into effect requiring voters to show an I.D.

    "Everything's probably going to be fine, and we are there to help you. The judges have all been trained to try to help you in the best way they can, exercise your right to vote," said DeBeauvoir.

    Preparations underway for Election Day

    Fortunately, most of the issues are being resolved without the voter having to use a provisional ballot.
