Do I need to provide ID when I apply for my New York absentee ballot

You do not need to provide ID if you've already voted in New York at least once. If you're voting in New York for the first time and you did not meet the ID requirements when you registered (see above), you must include a copy of your ID with your absentee ballot application. Acceptable forms of ID include: a copy of a current and valid photo ID that shows your name OR a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check or some other government document that shows your name and New York address.
