How to Track Your San Diego County Ballot – NBC 7 San Diego

The California primary election is right around the corner, and registered voters in San Diego County have already started receiving their ballots by mail.

Those willing to tick their votes have the added convenience of voting by mail. But how do you know when your ballot has been received? Or where is it after it has been handed over? Here’s a handy guide to help you learn how to track your ballot.


Once you have completed your ballot, head to the San Diego County Registrar of Electors website. There you will be invited to visit the State of California Ballotrax website. Once there, voters should complete the following steps to settle in:

  • Enter the requested information – including your first and last name, date of birth and postal code
  • Under ‘Contact preferences’, select how you want to receive notifications about your vote. You can select e-mail, SMS and voicemail. Additionally, you can change your preferences for language and notification times
  • Click on “update” after selecting the desired means of communication

The San Diego County Registrar of Electors said in a statement that voters can “track [their] vote every step of the way by sighing for “Where’s my ballot”, adding that participants “will receive automatic notifications as soon as [their] the ballot passes through the U.S. Postal Service and is received by the Registrar’s Office.”

The Ballottrax state dashboard will show you the status of your mail-in ballot. Whether it has been delivered, is in review, or has been completed, you can follow its process there. The website also shows you what previous absentee ballots have been mailed to you and the status of those.

“We encourage voters to act early and return their ballot to a trusted source,” the statement from the Registrar of Electors said. “You can complete your ballot from the comfort of your home and return it via the US Postal Service, free of postage, or return your ballot to one of the official registrar ballot boxes in the county.”
