No Excuse Absentee Voting

You may request your absentee ballot to be sent by mail using the  NC State Absentee Portal . It is available for all NC registered voters, Military and Overseas. 

Voting Absentee by Mail

If you are registered to vote in Cumberland County and are unable to vote in person on Election Day, you may request an absentee ballot by completing an absentee ballot request form. Absentee voting is allowed in all elections except fire district elections. 

How to Apply

The VOTER or voter's NEAR RELATIVE (spouse, brother, sister, parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, mother-in-law, father-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, step-parent, step-child) or verifiable legal guardian may apply for an absentee ballot by completing the Absentee Ballot Request Form.  This form must be completed, signed and returned to our office before we can send out an absentee ballot. Your request may be returned by mail or in person. You may also use the NC State Board Portal

A signed and completed North Carolina State Absentee Ballot Request Form must be received by the county board of elections office no later than 5 p.m. on the Tuesday before the date of the election for which the ballot is being requested.

Requests received after the absentee request deadline will not be considered on time, regardless of any postmark date.

Voting and returning your Absentee Ballot

Multipartisan Assistance Teams

For every primary or election, each county election office will have an assigned Multipartisan Assistance Team (MAT) available to assist voters living in a hospital, clinic, nursing home, or rest home with mail-in absentee voting. MATs are available for voters who need assistance with voting by mail-in absentee ballot, but who do not have a near relative or guardian available to help. If you are a voter as described above, contact your facility's staff to arrange a MAT visit. For more information about MATs, visit the  Multipartisan Assistance Teams page.
