Voters will be allowed to request and receive an absentee ballot, but only until 5 p.m. tomorrow, and it must be requested in person at the borough hall office in the borough where they live. Polanco said no form of identification is needed. (The only exception is for voters who registered by mail after the federal Help America Vote Act went into effect on January 1, 2003. Those voters may be asked for the last four digits of their social security number, driver’s license or non-driver’s ID.)
