San Benito County voters can now sign up for the Secretary of State’s “Where’s My Ballot?” tool to receive automatic updates on the status of their vote-by-mail ballots. Voters can sign-up at Where’s My Ballot to receive notifications about their vote-by-mail ballots by email, SMS (text), or voice call.
Voters who sign up for the “Where’s My Ballot?” tool receive automatic updates when:
- The county elections office mails the voter’s ballot
- The county has received the voter’s ballot
- The county has counted the voter’s ballot
- If there are any issues with the voter’s ballot
Voters signed up for “Where’s My Ballot?” will also receive communications from the San Benito County Department of Elections about important election deadlines and critical updates such as polling place closures.
The Secretary of State’s office contracted with BallotTrax to adapt a ballot tracking tool for California. BallotTrax has successfully deployed a similar tool in jurisdictions across the United States.
