2016 General Election Statistics: Voting Methods

The maps and charts below were developed by the State Board of Elections using data from the November 8, 2016 General Election. This data breaks down the different methods by which North Carolinians voted. All maps are fully interactive after clicking on them once. Individual counties may be selected to see exact voting numbers.

Voting methods are subdivided into five distinct categories:

  • One-Stop: Any vote cast in person at a physical location during the 17-day early voting period from October 20 to November 5.
  • In-Person: Any vote cast in person at your local polling place on Election Day.
  • Absentee-by-Mail: Any vote cast by requesting, recieving (via mail), and returning an absentee ballot. Does not include absentee ballots cast by active-duty servicemembers or U.S. citizens overseas.
  • Provisional:  A ballot cast by a voter when there are questions about his/her eligability. The votes recorded here are the ballots deemed admissable by the county Boards of Elections.
  • UOCAVA: Stands for Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act. This category contains any absentee ballots cast by active-duty military members and U.S. citizens overseas.
