Tracking Mailed Ballots

If you requested a ballot by mail, you may track your ballot online.

Please be advised, ballot tracking relies on U.S. Postal Service (USPS) scanning the ballot envelope at each stage of the delivery process. If USPS fails to scan the ballot envelope at any point, gaps in ballot tracking will occur.
