How to Track Your Absentee Ballot by State

Sep 22, 2020 · 2 min read

If postal slowdowns have you concerned about the status of your mail-in ballot, here’s how to check that it’s been received and counted.

By Chandra Steele

Voting this November is going to look very different than usual, across the country. People will be voting by absentee ballot in record numbers, and with the postal system facing major delays, the question of whether your vote counts can be an all-too-literal one. Fortunately, most states and the District of Columbia have set up systems for voters to check whether their ballot was received.

The first step, of course, is registering to vote and requesting or filling out that ballot. Once that’s done, the states below let you enter your name and date of birth to find out the status of your ballot.
