For voters who wish to check on the status of their mailed in ballot, the Clark County Elections Office has an online tool.
With the ballot status tool in VoteWA, you can track your ballot for each election from the time we mail it to you to the time we receive and accept it for counting!
|Tracking Tool Status||Meaning|
|Sent||Your ballot has been mailed to you.|
|Received||Your ballot has been received by Clark County Elections.|
|Accepted||Your ballot has been accepted and will be counted.|
|Rejected||Your ballot has an issue, likely with the signature on the envelope.|
If your tracking status is “rejected,” Clark County Elections will contact you by mail to inform you of the specific issue and how to resolve it. Please respond quickly to correct the situation so your vote can be counted.
Signature challenges occur when a voter does not sign the envelope which contains the voted ballot or when the signature on the return envelope does not match the signature the Clark County Elections Office has on file. If your signature is challenged, you will receive a letter from Clark County Elections.
To fix any signature challenge issues, carefully follow the instructions on the form you receive and return the form to Clark County Elections. All signature challenge forms must be received by our office no later than 5 pm the day before the election is certified. For this election, the date of certification is November 24th. So, the signature form must be received no later than 5 pm on November 23rd. Return your completed form in the envelope provided or drop it off in person to ensure your form is received before the deadline.
