Software provides clarity and transparency with regard to the mail-in ballot voting process
FREEHOLD, NJ – Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon is reminding Monmouth County voters who choose to vote by mail for the 2021 General Election that they can sign up for the County’s ballot tracking notification system. Clerk Hanlon launched the supplemental system last year, in partnership with the Monmouth County Board of Elections, to help voters know when their mail-in ballots have been received by the County Board of Elections for counting.
In 2020, Monmouth County became the first County in the State of New Jersey to implement this supplemental ballot tracking software for their residents. During last year’s General Election, the Monmouth County Election Offices received reports that some voters had experienced difficulty signing up for the State Division of Elections’ ballot tracking website. Therefore, County Election Officials launched the Monmouth County BallotTrax to provide an alternative system and to ease voters’ anxiety of whether their ballots have been received for counting.
The “Monmouth County BallotTrax” system provides online ballot tracking and offers enhanced features of status notifications to voters. Voters will then receive an alert of when their ballots have been received by the County Board of Elections. Voters can sign up for the County BallotTrax at monmouthcounty.ballottrax.net and enable notifications via call, email or text message.
“Monmouth County is proud to have been the first County in the State of New Jersey to provide its voters with this easy to use supplemental ballot tracking system,” said Clerk Hanlon. “The County’s BallotTrax software provides voters with clarity and transparency with regard to the mail-in ballot voting process, and we continue to encourage all mail-in ballot voters to sign up for the free system.”
To sign up for the Monmouth County BallotTrax system, voters can log onto monmouthcounty.ballottrax.net.
