Multnomah County

After a successful pilot program last year, Multnomah County Elections is continuing to offer a service that allows voters to track the status of their ballot. Many other counties in Oregon are  also offering the service this year.

Text, email or voice alerts will tell voters when the County Elections office has mailed ballots. Alerts will remind voters to return their ballot and where to find information about official ballot drop sites.  Alerts will also say whether the ballot has been accepted or whether it has a non-matching signature or another defect that requires further action by the voter.

Many voters who tried the service last year were very pleased with how simple the service is and how much transparency and integrity it provides to the voting process. One voter, Craig Loftin, a voter in Multnomah County who signed up last year commented about the service.  “It's simple and it works! If you've ever wondered if your vote actually was received and counted, this is the answer for you!”

There is no charge to voters to sign up for this service. Voters will have the option of receiving text, email or voice alerts.  

Multnomah County voters can sign up by visiting: https://multnomah.ballottrax.net/voter/login#/

The ballot tracking program is in partnership with BallotTrax and the Oregon Secretary of State.

The last day to register to vote or change political party for the upcoming May 17 Primary election is April 26.
