What is Ballot TRACE?

Ballot Trace Logo

Ballot TRACE is an award-winning, innovative mail ballot Tracking, Reporting, And Communication Engine developed for Denver's mail ballot voters by the Denver Elections Division. 



Ballot TRACE 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 Denver Elections Division.

Ballot TRACE 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.

Ballot TRACE provides a messaging system where voters receive messages about the status of their ballot: before it enters the mail system, while it is being processed by the USPS, and after it has been returned to the Elections Division. Voters can choose to:
  • retrieve their updates using the Denver Elections Division’s website;
  • automatically receive their updates via email; or
  • automatically receive their updates via text messages.

Please give us your feedback regarding your experience with Ballot TRACE.
