If you want to vote by mail for the May 8 primary in the North Carolina county of your voter registration, the absentee form is available at: https://www.ncsbe.gov/Portals/0/Forms/NCAbsenteeBallotRequestForm.pdf
You must print the form, then it can be mailed, FAXed, or scanned and emailed to the board of election of the county of your voter registration.

YOUR ABSENTEE BALLOT APPLICATION MUST REACH THE APPROPRIATE COUNTY BOARD OF ELECTIONS OFFICE BY TUESDAY, MAY 1. Waiting until May 1 to send an absentee application is cutting it close, I suggest sending it in by April 24.
Orange County voters not wanting to vote on May 8 or early vote can vote by mail by following the above instructions.
All 100 counties have early voting in one or more locations from Thursday April 19 through Saturday, May 5.
