Absentee voting is comprised of two methods by which registered voters may cast ballots other than the traditional method of appearing in person and casting a ballot on the day of the election. These methods are absentee by mail and absentee one-stop.
Any voter registered in Mecklenburg County can request an absentee ballot from the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections prior to the last Tuesday before an election by completing the
Absentee Ballot Request Form. An application and ballots will be mailed to the voter after the receipt of a completed form. The form must be mailed or hand delivered to our office. As of January 1, 2020 we can no longer accept electronically.
If you are
Military, immediate family of Active Military, or a US citizen overseas, please visit
FVAP.gov to register and request your ballots.
Any voter registered in Mecklenburg County may choose to vote in person using One-Stop Absentee Voting which begins the third Wednesday before the election and ends the Saturday prior to the election. Dates, times, and locations vary by election and will be posted prior to each election on this site. Early Voting for the General Election to be held November 3, 2020 will begin Thursday, October 15, 2020 and end Saturday, October 31, 2020 at 3 pm.
