Absentee by-mail voting in NC started 2 weeks ago. Ballots are being cast at a rapid pace.

North Carolina voters are switching to mail-in voting this year at a rapid pace, with more than 100,000 ballots cast so far.

In the 2016 presidential election, less than 200,000 people voted by mail. After just two weeks, voters this year are already more than halfway to surpassing that mark, and there’s still over a month to go until Election Day.

And there are hundreds of thousands more North Carolina voters who have received mail-in ballots but have yet to fill them out and return them. The state has received nearly 900,000 requests for absentee ballots as of Thursday, public records show. They were mailed out Sept. 4.

Despite stories about slowdowns at the U.S. Postal Service, there have not been any major issues, either with sending ballots to voters or with voters sending their ballots in, said Wake County Elections Director Gary Sims.

“We’ve been seeing regular turnaround by the mail,” he said. “It’s been good.”
