After you've mailed it.

Pass it on.

Looks like it’s probably OK. Or at least does what it says.

So this is purchased and sponsored by the individual voting district or state? It is not a national tracking group anyone can sign up for? Which means using this specific form as presented here is not operable?

Good.

I still have a concern I do not see addressed in the write-up.

These are Australian ballots. Secret. With this system the state can now trace a specific marked ballot directly to you.

That may not be a major concern for most people. I guess that those that object can go vote at the precinct.

No, don't pass it on. The form and site presented are not applicable outside the specific voting district.

But it is good to be aware such a thing exists if your state or district decide to use such.

Thank you JonF

Each state runs its own election. Each state has its own mechanism for tracking ballots and its own website (or sites, one for each county) through which you should be able to track your ballot after you have mailed it in.

Only use the official websites. Do not trust third-party sites.

Nah, not until I do some research.
