And now Abbott will have to sign an affidavit, his spokesman told The San Antonio Express-News, because the name on Abbott's driver's license is Gregory Wayne Abbott while his name on the voter registration list is just Greg Abbott. 

State Sen. Wendy Davis (D), Abbott's likely Democratic opponent in the governor's race, also had to sign an affidavit earlier this week. 

Abbott his been an outspoken proponent of the voter ID provision that requires a photo ID to vote. He plans to vote early in the November election, according to Abbot spokesman Matt Hirsch.
