How do I track my ballot? Here's how for all 50 states

Some states may track your ballot using BallotTrax or VoterView.

You can keep track of your mail-in ballot online.

More than 50.9 million Americans have voted early ahead of the 2020 elections, with over 35 million of those being mail-in votes. And if you've decided to vote by mail this election, like millions of other Americans, you may be surprised to know you can track your ballot online after you vote. Most states offer a way to let you see where your ballot is online, so you know when it's received.

Tracking your ballot can give you peace of mind, knowing it arrived before your state's deadline. If you're concerned about voting by mail, know there's been no evidence of coordinated vote-by-mail fraud, with fewer than 150 criminal convictions for the crime over the last 20 years. Here are some ways to make sure your vote will count.

Depending on the state you live in, you may be required to enter information like your first and last name, date of birth and sometimes your Social Security number. Note that each state uses its own service for tracking your ballot, including the US Postal Service. It's always a good idea -- and, in the case of USPS, it's necessary -- to save the tracking number on your ballot to help locate its whereabouts. States like Wyoming and Mississippi require you to call your county clerk's, office for tracking information.

After you vote, here's how to track your ballot online in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
