Provisional ballots

  The provisional ballot lookup tool is not available.

Our provisional ballot lookup tool allows voters to check the status of their ballot the Monday after the election until 21 days after the election is certified. Certification occurs 15 days after a primary or special election and 21 days after the general election.

What is a provisional ballot?

A provisional ballot is cast by a voter whose name does not appear on our list of registered voters at an accessible voting center.

Provisional ballots are processed after election officials verify the voter is eligible to cast a ballot, a labor-intensive process which generally takes between five and nine days to complete.

Once verified, the ballot is added to the official count.
