Results from key counties across the states are continuing to be counted and revealed as the 2020 US Election edges closer to a conclusion. With different rules and regulations for individual states, and some allowing votes to still be counted if they were postmarked on Election Day (November 3), you may be wondering about the status of your mail-in ballot. If you are, some states allow you to check the status of your ballot online.

Each ballot has its own specific number, meaning that voters can track their own mail-in ballot as it progresses through the electoral system. These are sometimes referred to as "Intelligent Mail Barcodes". They allow you, and states, to track the delivery of ballots. Some ballot tracking systems simply inform you that the ballot has been sent, while others are able to advise you that your ballot has been accepted. Not every state has the technology in place to allow you to check the status of your vote - if not, you can contact your local election office if you have any questions or concerns.

All you need to do to check on the status of your ballot is to register for your state's ballot tracking system. You can find links to each State's ballot tracking website below:
