Austin, TX -- The Texas House was supposed to vote on the Voter ID bill Monday, but a point of order was called on the bill due to wording.

 House officials say the wording of the bill wasn't matching up with wording in a bill analysis.

The bill requires people to present a photo ID before casting a ballot. That includes a driver's license, passport, military ID or concealed handgun license.

Some critics say they worry mail-in ballots would cause some problems and people without ID should be able to get one at no cost.

Supporters say it will cut back on ballot-box fraud. Now it's up to the House has to fix the wording before they can vote.
