Absentee-by-mail Voting

Note: Request forms for absentee-by-mail ballots are not available until January 2024. In January, the Absentee Ballot Request Portal will be activated and the printable PDF form will be available on our website. 

To request an absentee-by-mail ballot online for the 2024 Municipal Election, visit the North Carolina Absentee Ballot Request Portal and follow the instructions. The portal provides a secure way to request an absentee-by mail-ballot which will be mailed to you.

You may also mail a completed, signed request form or hand deliver it to our office. 

Check your voter record at the State Board's Voter Search Tool to find out whether your ballot was accepted by your county board of elections. This information will appear in the voter record after a ballot has been accepted.

Sign up for BallotTrax to track your ballot through the mail system. BallotTrax is a service that will allow voters to track their ballot through the mail and confirm receipt by the county board of elections.
