Any registered North Carolina voter may request an absentee ballot by mail. No excuse is needed to vote by absentee. To request an absentee ballot, complete the State Absentee Ballot Request Form. The State Absentee Ballot Request Form may only be signed by the voter or a voter’s near relative or legal guardian. A near relative is considered to be a spouse, brother, sister, parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, mother-in-law, father-in-law, daughter-in-law, son-in-law, stepparent, or stepchild of the voter.
A completed State Absentee Ballot Request Form may be mailed, faxed or scanned and then emailed to the county board of elections. The contact information for the county boards of elections may be found here.
