The NLRB conducts secret ballot elections. For in-person voting, a Board agent will be present during scheduled voting times for eligible voters to show identification and vote in a booth (similar to the voting process in political elections). For mail ballots (which might be used for Hearst employees who work remotely or in cities outside of New York), eligible voters will be mailed ballots with a window of 10-14 days to ensure everyone receives a ballot and has time to mail it back to the NLRB. In all cases, the ballots will be secret.
