The New York State Board of Elections has released a new statewide absentee ballot tracker to allow any voter in the state to monitor the status of their absentee ballot. This comprehensive tool will help voters track their absentee ballot and ensure their vote is counted.
The tracking system will inform voters when their absentee ballot request has been received by their County Board of Elections, and whether a ballot has been sent, received, and counted. The portal will also alert voters if their absentee ballot has a curable or non-curable defect.
The new portal is integrated with the state’s existing Voter Registration and Poll Site Search tool which can be accessed at https://voterlookup.elections.ny.gov/.
