Albany - - Primary election day is less than two weeks away. When you go to the polls on July 18th, you'll have to bring an official photo ID.
If you don't have one, there's still time to get one for free. The Albany Voter Registration Office is offering free photo id's for voters, but so far, no one has stopped by to get one.
"They have to have certain things to show us, ID, to get this and they'll need to call the office or come by and let us work with them," says Elections Superintendent Carolyn Hatcher.
To receive your photo ID, you have to bring a document that has your full name and your date of birth, like a birth certificate, court records you have filed, or even a paycheck or pay stub.
You also need a document that shows your street address, like a utility or cable bill, a bank statement, or last year's W-2 form.
