Track My Ballot

How To Track the Progress of Your Ballot

Start by signing into your personal My Voter Record account.

  Log Into My Voter Record  

If you do not already have a My Voter Record account, you will need to set up an account.

A voter's ballot status will begin to change to "Accepted" or "Rejected" after the certification of the Election on November 20th. Due to the impact of COVID-19 on the Salem and Ocean County boards of election staff and facilities Election certification in those counties has been extended to November 25th per Executive Order #198. The ballot status for voter's in those counties will begin to change after November 25th. Ballot status information is provided by all counties via an automated process. The amount of time it takes until updates are posted to the Track My Ballot tool will vary from county to county. Please check back periodically for updates to your ballot status. If you have questions about your ballot status, please call your County Election Officials.

How To Set Up Your Personal My Voter Record Account

Before creating a “My Voter Record Account”:

  • Please visit the Am I Registered/Voter Search Tool to confirm your voter registration information for accuracy, including spelling, date of birth, and city/county

    If you experience difficulty bringing up your voter registration record: Please remember your county provided the information that is loaded into the “Am I Registered” tool. Therefore the name you enter into the “Am I Registered" lookup tool must exactly match how the county provided it to work correctly.

    Here are some things to keep in mind when entering your name into the “Am I Registered” tool:
    • Does your last name have a hyphen or space?
      For example: McDonald may be entered as Mc Donald.
    • Was there a hyphen added or last name changed due to marriage?
    • Is there a middle initial is used to search and the county doesn’t have a middle name on your registration.
    • Nicknames won’t match.
      For example: Kate won’t match Katherine, Jim won’t match James, etc.
    • If the information is shown incorrectly in your voter registration record, county election officials must be notified. However, for purposes of creating your Voter Record Account enter the information as it currently appears in you voter registration record.
  • Once you have confirmed your information, locate your Voter ID number in the record you retrieved and write it down. You should then use the Voter ID number to create a “My Voter Record” account. 

Now you are ready to go ahead and create a “Voter Record Account” to track your ballot.

Here are some helpful tips when creating your “Voter Record Account”:

  • There can’t be any spaces in the first name when creating an account.
    For example:  If a voter’s first name is “S Robert,” the voter should create an account using “S” as the first name.
  • Your username must be between 4 and 15 characters long and may consist of any of the following characters:
    • a-z
    • 0-9
    • underscores
    • a single period
  • Your password must be at least eight characters long and include at least one of the following:
    • lowercase letter
    • uppercase letter
    • number
    • symbol (! @ # $ % ^ & *)
  • When logging into your account for the first time, please be aware you are to log in using your username and password, not your email address.
