LEBANON, Tenn. (WTVF) — People in Wilson County choosing to vote absentee can track the progress of their ballot through a new system.

As Trump questions, the integrity of mail-in voting, state, and local officials are turning to ballot-tracking software to give voters more confidence in the process. As election officials around the country race to ramp up mail-in voting ahead of this November's general elections, they're taking a number of steps to ensure their systems run efficiently and securely. Yet even in the best-run systems, there are occasional glitches. In Denver County in 2010, for instance, a county official became alarmed when she received a notification that she should have received her ballot in the mail -- but it never came.

COLUMBUS (WCMH)–Between the coronavirus and the controversy over delays in mail delivery, some voters have concerns about going to the polls and about putting absentee ballots in the mail this year. Aaron Sellers, a spokesman for the Franklin County Board of Elections, explained they are now receiving 3,000 to 5,000 applications for absentee ballots each day.

Each absentee ballot has a bar code, and cameras in the mail handling system scan the bar codes to track the movement of the ballots. 2020 Ohio General and Presidential Election guide Sellers says voters can sign up for a service called BallotTrax that will provide push alerts notifying voters where their ballot is in the process. “This is certainly something that will help voter’s peace of mind knowing...

As many states rush to implement new ways to protect voters from COVID-19 exposure, they’re turning to systems to help ensure people’s access to the ballot doesn’t get lost in the mail. [Source Image: greyj/iStock, ONYXprj/iStock] By Talib Visram9 minute Read As part of a string of voting laws signed by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam in mid-April, the state became the 34th in the country whose residents may vote by mail without having to prove that they couldn’t vote in person. Of the remaining 16 states that don’t grant that right, governors and election officials in 11 allowed exceptions during the primaries on account of the pandemic—and if the coronavirus is still lingering in November, might be expected to continue those exceptions. “Whether they want to or not, all states are going to see a dramatic surge in mail voting this year because of the pandemic,” says Wendy...
