Track My Ballot
Want to know if your mail-in ballot has been received? You can check the status by signing up.
What is Track My Ballot?
- Track My Ballot is the ability for voters to keep updated on the status of their mail-in ballot as it moves through the process.
- It can be accessed through the voter’s “My Voter Record” account.
- It is not necessarily “real-time” tracking due to the lack of adequate technology at the county level to scan Mail-in Ballots on a large scale.
- It allows voters to see:
- Ballot request type
- issued date
- Ballot received date
- Request processed date
- Ballot issued date
- Ballot received date
- Ballot Status (Received, Accepted, N/A, Rejected)
How to Sign Up
What does Track My Ballot in My Voter Record look like?
You will get your entire Election History, Mail-in Ballot History, and Provisional Ballot History. You will also get:
- Polling place information
- Upcoming Election Dates
- Voting District Information
- Names and Contact Information of all your County Election Officials: Superintendent of Elections or Commissioner of Registration, Board of Elections, County Clerk, ADA Committee Members
What do the Ballot Status terms mean?
- “N/A” indicates they there’s essentially nothing to report
- “Received” — your mail-in ballot bar code was scanned in on that date and they are in possession of it.
- “Accepted” — mail-in ballots that have passed the Security Features and will be counted.
- “Rejected” — mail-in ballots that failed one or more security features and will not count.
Should I be worried when I don't see "Received" or "Accepted"?
You may not see “Accepted” until after Election Day, and that’s okay. But, if on Election Day and your Ballot Status is still listed as “N/A” and doesn’t show as “Received” and you mailed, dropped, or delivered more than 5 days prior, please take a screen snapshot of that and you can vote by Provisional Ballot at your local polling place if you are anxious and want to ensure that your vote counts. A very small percentage of ballots get rejected but a majority — 98.9% in the 2020 General Election — are received and accepted.
