We’re answering your voting questions. Share what you want to know by filling out this brief survey (which can be anonymous) or sending an email to (or just reply to this newsletter!).

🗳️ You asked: If we get an absentee ballot, can we turn it in in person?

Yep! You can hand-deliver your absentee ballot in person to the Wake County Board of Elections Operations office, 1200 N. New Hope Road in Raleigh, before 5 p.m. on Election Day (Nov. 3). Hours of operation are 8:30 a.m.-5:15 p.m. Monday-Friday.

You can also deliver it in person to an early voting site, which has longer hours and weekend options.

There’s no special line; you’ll wait with early voters in the case others are lined up. Your absentee ballot should be complete and sealed in the envelope. You’ll fill out the absentee ballot return log. Then you’ll be on your way!

Newly launched! The state's BallotTrax portal, so you can track your ballot through the mail. You can track when it will arrive, through the mail and when it’s counted.

🗳️ More of your questions on mail-in voting, candidate info, answered.
