Important Things to Know from AARP about Voting!

How can I get an absentee ballot? Are there important deadlines?

For the first time this year, voters can request absentee ballots by email or fax, or through a special state board of elections online portal that will debut by Sept. 1. For now, you can download an absentee ballot request form online and email, mail, fax or hand-deliver it to your county board of elections.

A voter’s near relative (spouse, brother, sister, parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, mother-in-law, father-in-law, daughter-in-law, son-in-law, stepparent or stepchild) or legal guardian can also complete and submit the form. To be counted in the November election, your absentee ballot request form must be received by 5 p.m. on Oct. 27. Early in-person voting is open from Oct. 15 to 31. check with your county board of elections or the state board of elections website for hours and locations.

Do you need identification to vote?

North Carolina is under a federal court injunction that put its voter ID requirement on hold. ID is not currently required. But the state’s absentee ballot requires an ID number from a North Carolina driver’s license or a special identification card for nonoperators, or the last four digits of your Social Security number.

How do I know my absentee ballot is secure?

Election officials will deliver absentee ballots only to voters who specifically request them. Every absentee ballot will have a unique identifier to allow both election officials and the voter to track the completed ballot following its return to the county board of elections. The state employs technology to prevent anyone from voting twice.

What you win:

The winner will receive a $250 Visa Gift Card. The Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) is $250.
