The 1984 United States presidential election in North Carolina took place on November 6, 1984, and was part of the 1984 United States presidential election. Voters chose 13 representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

North Carolina strongly voted for the Republican nominee, President Ronald Reagan, over the Democratic nominee, Vice President Walter Mondale in a landslide. The final margin was 61.90% to 37.89%, which compared to the other southern states, was close to the southern average.
