Many states offer online ballot tracking systems, others require contacting election officials

By Audrey Conklin | Fox News

Many states offer online ballot tracking systems, others require contacting election officials.

Voting by mail has been extremely popular among Americans participating in the 2020 presidential election this year.

More than 64 million absentee ballots have been cast as of Tuesday out of more than 100 million total votes in the U.S., and more than 27 absentee ballots are outstanding, according to the U.S. Elections Project, leading some voters to wonder if they can check the status of their mail-in ballots.

Many states offer online tools where voters can check their ballot status, while others require voters to contact local election offices and representatives.
