15 Sep BallotTrax Updates and Product Feature Improvements
As we continue our journey towards the November midterm elections, it is more important than ever to reassure voters that voting by mail is a trusted and secure process. BallotTrax is here to provide election and ballot status information to voters in a timely manner.
We are excited to share that BallotTrax is now available to nearly 60 million voters nationally. Earlier this year, Hawaii and Utah conducted their first statewide elections with the BallotTrax system. They will join California, Colorado, Nevada, Georgia, North Carolina, and Rhode Island as states that offer the service to all non-confidential mail ballot voters.

For the last two years, the focus of the BallotTrax development team has been to dramatically improve system performance while seamlessly adding new jurisdictions and millions of supported users. To accomplish this, the system has undergone numerous database optimizations and software upgrades which will enable election officials to quickly support voters and keep tabs on how the election is progressing. Users will notice massive performance improvements when downloading reports, querying voters, and searching messages.
New election reporting tools will allow election officials to see an overview of ballot status progression for every election they have run with the BallotTrax system. Dashboard data and a status message overview are now available as downloadable reports as well.
In the next few months, accounts that use Intelligent Mail Barcodes to track mail ballots can expect new functionality to check delivery times and locate individual ballots. These improvements will empower election officials to provide more information to voters, reassuring them that their mail ballot is safe and secure.
BallotTrax is an award-winning software system that has revolutionized the notification process for mail ballots. The system combines data from the state, county, and USPS to send ballot status updates to voters, from printed to accepted, via email, SMS, and voice message. With tracking, reports, and branding customization, election officials have a valuable resource for maximizing election accountability, all while keeping their voters more informed and engaged.
