Absentee & Mail-In Voting

Any North Carolina registered voter may request, receive, and vote a mail-in absentee ballot. No special circumstance or reason is needed. Registered voters in NC must request an absentee ballot with an official N.C. Absentee Ballot Request Form. Here are the two ways to access and submit the form:

  1. Online with “Option 1 – Request an Absentee Ballot” at the N.C. Absentee Ballot Portal

  2. On paper with the English N.C. Absentee Ballot Request Form for 2022 (fillable PDF) or the English N.C. Absentee Ballot Request Form for 2022 (non-fillable print-only PDF) or the Spanish N.C. Absentee Ballot Request Form for 2022.

 

Track your absentee-by-mail ballot through the mail: Once you have requested your absentee ballot, you can track its status from printed to accepted by signing up online for status notifications through BallotTrax.
