Ballot Stuck In The Mail? Here Are Your Options For Voting In North Carolina

Grant Holub-Moorman
Of the mail-in ballots counted in North Carolina, 27.4% did not vote in the 2016 elections.

While North Carolinians requested nearly 1.4 million absentee ballots, fewer than half of those have been returned and accepted. Government and watchdog experts continue to express public confidence that mail-in votes are safe and will be counted if filled out properly. 

But long delay times are expected as postal workers deal with a record influx. If your ballot is stuck on the return trip to your local board of elections, you may be wondering about ways to ensure your vote is tallied. Host Frank Stasio checks in with reporter Jordan Wilkie about new guidance and suggestions for North Carolinian voters in 2020. Wilkie is a Report for America Corps member working for Carolina Public Press and the NC Watchdog Reporting Network
