One method is Absentee by One-Stop/Early Voting. This method allows any registered voter to cast an absentee ballot in person on select days prior to Election Day. Unlike on Election Day, when registered voters can only vote at their specific precinct, one- stop voting allows registered voters to vote at any one-stop absentee voting site in the county. One-stop sites will have all the ballot styles for a given election at each site. When you present to vote at a one-stop site, you may change your name or address, if it needs to be updated.
A second method is requesting a mail-in absentee ballot. Any Rowan County registered voter who is qualified to vote in an election may request and receive a mail-in absentee ballot for any election in which absentee voting is allowed. No special circumstance or reason is needed to receive and vote a mail-in absentee ballot.
