Track your vote-by-mail ballot
The California Secretary of State is now offering Where’s My Ballot?—a new way for voters to track and receive notifications on the status of their vote-by-mail ballot.  “BallotTrax, Where’s My Ballot?” allows voters to know where their ballot is, and its status, every step of the way.
Sacramento County is one of the participating counties. How you vote won’t be revealed but you can follow your ballot to see it received and ready to be counted.
