Ballots must be postmarked by election day. But the state is allowing until November 12th for those to be received in case the mail is slow. Voters must complete their absentee ballot in front of a witness and the witness must also sign that ballot envelope. North Carolina voters have already requested 1.4 million absentee ballots. Let's go to Texas now. Another potential battleground state. Absentee ballots must be postmarked by 7:00 P.M. On election day and received no later than 5:00 P.M. The day after the election. If you are voting in person, you are required to show a photo I.D. There.
