Absentee by Mail
Any registered North Carolina voter can request a mail-in absentee ballot. This
type of absentee voting allows a voter or a near relative or legal guardian to request
that an absentee ballot be sent to the voter by mail. The voter may vote the ballot
and return it to the county board of elections by the ballot return deadline.
One-Stop Voting (Early Voting)
One-stop absentee voting (in-person absentee voting, or early voting) allows registered
voters to go in person to their county board of elections office (or an alternative
location) to vote an absentee ballot. One-stop absentee voting is conducted starting
on the second Thursday before the election and ends at 1:00 p.m. on the last Saturday
before the election.
Military and Overseas Citizens
Absent uniformed services members (and their eligible dependents) and U.S. citizens
living outside of the United States may request an absentee ballot under the Uniformed
and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA). This federal act and its corresponding
law in this state allows uniformed service members and overseas citizens who are
absent from their county of residence in North Carolina to request, receive and
return an absentee ballot under special rights.
