Military, overseas, and out of state registration

If you are not in the state of North Carolina but are still a resident of North Carolina you are still allowed to register to vote.


If you are in the military or an overseas resident you can register by:

  • The Federal Postcard Application (FPCA)

OR

  • The Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB)

With these two ways you have to physically sign it and turn it in to the State Board of elections by 5 p.m. on the day before the election date. You may turn it in by mail, email, or fax.


If you are a out-of-state resident and still live in that permanent residence, you can register by:
