ID REQUIREMENT
Registered New York voters do not need to show ID at the polls to vote. Poll workers may ask whether the voter has a voter card with a bar code that is provided by the local BOE, but it is not ID, nor is it required to vote. It is provided as a convenience to the voter and helps accelerate the check-in process.

VOTER WORKPLACE PROTECTION
A registered voter may, without loss of pay for up to three hours, take off so much working time as will enable him or her to vote at any election. The employee shall be allowed time off for voting only at the beginning or end of his or her working shift, as the employer may designate, unless otherwise mutually agreed. Employer notice: must post no less than 10 days before election. Employee notice: must provide notice to employer no less than 2 days before election.
