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.
Watch a quick presentation on how to vote a by-mail ballot.
