New Service for the November Election
August 29, 2017
Chaffee County Clerk and Recorder Lori Mitchell
The Chaffee County Clerk and Recorder’s office will be piloting a new service for voters during the upcoming 2017 Coordinated Election. The new free service is called BallotTrax and it tracks the status of your mail ballot and sends a series of proactive alerts notifying you where your ballot is in the election process, from printed to accepted. BallotTrax offers a simple sign up solution for voters to receive messages via Email, Text, or Voice. Chaffee County voters may sign up at chaffeevotes.ballottrax.net.
BallotTrax utilizes the Postal Service’s intelligent mail barcode technology to track a mail ballot envelope from the time it is printed, through every stage of the U.S. Postal System, and after it has been returned to the Chaffee County Clerk’s office.
BallotTrax provides reports about the status of all mail ballots to election officials so that they can assure that ballots sent to voters are delivered in a timely fashion.
The 2017 Coordinated Election Day is November 7th and mail ballots will be sent to all eligible active registered voters beginning the week of October 16th. Coordinating entities are the City of Salida, Salida School District, and Buena Vista School District. County Clerk Lori Mitchell encourages voters to get ready for the 2017 Election by signing up for BallotTrax and also checking to see if their registration is correct, especially their address, by visiting www.GoVoteColorado.com or calling the election office at 719-530-5604.
