North Carolina has a lower percentage of votes being cast absentee than many states. According to the most recent data, about 21% of the votes cast thus far have been by absentee ballot, with the rest coming from early in-person voting. This means that the total number of rejected absentees is smaller than it might have been, at least so far. With more than 4.5 M votes cast so far, the number of rejected absentees is 7,675. That’s 0.17% of votes cast, before we get to all the Election Day voting in person.
Numbers come for the invaluable US Elections Project. These numbers will change, of course, in the next days.
