How do I check the status of my mail-in ballot?

You can check the status online at votespa.com/mailballotstatus. Statuses are as follows:

  1. No Record: This means that you haven’t applied yet or that we have not processed your application. Please allow 10-14 business days from the time you submit your application for processing. If you provided your email address on the application, you will receive an email indicating that your application was processed. 
  2. Pending: This means that your application was received and approved, but that your ballot has not been mailed yet. 
  3. Processed: This means that your application was received and approved, and your ballot has been mailed.
  4. Vote Recorded: This means that we received your ballot and have recorded your vote. 

The PA State system only recognizes an email address once, so if you and another member of your household provided the same email address you will only receive an email for one ballot.
