Under certain circumstances, yes. If you are permanently ill or disabled, you can use the
New York Absentee Ballot Application to apply for permanent absentee status. Once approved, New York State will automatically mail you an absentee ballot for each eligible election.
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.
If the deadline for requesting an absentee ballot by mail has passed and you cannot appear at the polls on election day because of an accident or sudden illness, then you may be able to vote by Emergency Absentee Ballot. You'll need to write a letter authorizing a representative to pick up an Absentee Ballot Application and an Absentee Ballot for you. Your representative will need to take this letter to your County Board of Elections. Your County Board of Elections will give the documents to your representative. The application and voted absentee ballot must be returned to your County Board of Elections by 9:00 P.M. on election day. Please contact yourCounty Board of Elections for more information.an accident or sudden illness
