DON’T FORGET: You Can Track the Progress of Your Absentee Ballot Online

Sign up to track the progress of your absentee ballot for the January runoff election and you’ll receive email or text alerts.

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office is still using the quick and convenient system to track absentee ballots and get updates on the status of the ballots. Once voters sign up on the new BallotTrax system, they’ll get either email or text message alerts on the status of their ballots.

Notification will be sent when the absentee ballot application is accepted, when the absentee ballot is sent, and if and when the absentee ballot is accepted or rejected. Voters whose absentee ballots are rejected will be provided with the contact information to fix the issue so they can be assured their vote will be counted.

The site can be accessed HERE.

Voters who sign up for notifications after they have already begun the absentee ballot request and return process will receive a notification informing them of the most recent step they have completed in the process. If they have request a ballot but it has not been accepted by elections officials, they will receive a notification that their ballot has been sent. If the absentee ballot has already been accepted by elections officials, newly registered voters will receive a notification that the ballot has been accepted upon signing up.

Notifications about an individual voter’s ballot status may be delayed by a day. Standard text message rates apply for those opting to receive text message updates.
