Monmouth County voters can know when their ballots have been received by the Board of Elections by signing up at a new service called Monmouth County BallotTrax.
The supplemental service was announced Oct. 20 by County Clerk Christine Hanlon.
The ballot tracking system provides online ballot tracking and offers enhanced features of status notifications to voters. Voters can sign up for the County BallotTrax and enable notifications via call, email or text message. Voters will then receive an alert of when their ballots have been received by the County Board of Elections.
The County Election Offices have received reports that some voters have experienced difficulty signing up for the State Division of Elections’ ballot tracking website. County election officials hope that the new Monmouth County BallotTrax will act as a supplemental system to ease voters’ anxiety regarding whether their ballots have been received for counting.
“The County’s election offices are teaming up to give voters an alternative system to find out when their ballots have arrived safely,” said Clerk Hanlon. “Our hope is that this system will provide voters with clarity and transparency with regard to the mail-in ballot voting process. The enhanced feature for notifications makes the process easier for voters.”
To sign up for the Monmouth County BallotTrax system, voters can log onto monmouthcounty.ballottrax.net.
