DENVER – Now that ballots have been mailed to all registered Colorado voters, many of you are probably wondering if there is any way to keep track of your ballot once it’s mailed back.

While the Secretary of State’s Office has a website where you can register to vote, you can also check your ballot status there and find your polling location.

But Denver and Boulder counties have gone a step further and created ballot-tracking software that will show you exactly where your ballot is after it’s mailed back.

The Denver Elections Division uses a program called Ballot TRACE, which uses the U.S. Postal Service’s barcode technology to track a ballot envelope from its printing, to its delivery to your home, and then back to the elections division after it is mailed back.

If you sign up for Ballot TRACE, you can also sign up for automatic updates via email or text messages. Updates are also available on the elections division’s website.

Boulder County has a similar system called Ballot Track, which follows your ballot through the process and keeps you updated on its status as well. The system is nearly identical to the one utilized in Denver.

Boulder County residents can sign up to track their ballots here.
