VotingFlickrSonoma County voters can now sign up for a program to track their vote-by-mail ballot from the time it’s mailed to when it’s counted.

The “Where’s My Ballot?” program from the Secretary of State’s Office allows the voter to receive updates on the location of their ballot via text, email or voicemail in real time.

“This is an exciting opportunity for our County to participate in a program to increase transparency around the ballot process, allow voters to receive status updates on their ballots, and help our office communicate important information to voters,” said Sonoma County Clerk Deva Marie Proto in a press release. “This information includes deadlines for returning ballots, when a voter can expect their ballot to arrive in their mailbox, when the ballot is received by the office, when the ballot is counted and if there are any issues with the ballot.”

The “Where’s My Ballot” program is currently being offered by 25 other California Election Offices, with more expected to participate before the November 2020 election. It’s offered at no cost to the county.
