ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

Monday was the first day of early voting, many made it out to vote for the next president and local leaders.

In Ector County alone 3,316 votes were cast. Voters we talked to say this election is a little different and voted to make a difference.

If you're registered to vote, you’re eligible to cast your ballot for November's election. Early voters said they want their voices heard.

"Well I felt it was important to get out here and get this done before something distracted us, and I wasn't able to get in and do my privilege," said early voter, Cliff Goble.

To cast your ballot in the state of Texas you have to bring one of the following with you to your polling location.

  • Texas driver's license
  • Texas election ID certificate
  • License to carry
  • Military ID with a photo
  • U.S. citizenship certificate with a photo
  • Passport

If you don't have any of those, you have to follow two steps. You'll need to sign a sworn statement with the reason why you don't have a proper ID and bring a supporting document such as a certified birth certificate, utility bill or bank statement.

Those who already voted want you to go out and do the same.

"Please vote it's very important," said early voter, Viola Lara.

"This is a very important election for our country, so if you miss your opportunity I really don't think you have the right to complain about the way things are," said Goble.

Early voters have until November 4, Election Day is November 8.
