Days Until Election Day
North Carolina has no excuse absentee voting. Any registered North Carolina Voter may request an absentee ballot and vote by mail.
This year North Carolina has launched a new ballot tracker so that you can see the status of your ballot from the time you request it until it reaches your mailbox and is ultimately counted. Click here to sign up for BallotTrax.
