Check Your Ballot Status

Vote

If you voted by mail, you can Google “check ballot status.” Google is doing a pretty good job of surfacing the correct local links to this query. There is no central voter database, so I put the links for every state I could find here. If you have better info, please email it to [email protected] and we’ll update this list. Thank you!
