How to track your vote-by-mail from Los Altos to the Registrar

Mountain View voters

Election results for races in the Los Altos area won't start coming in until polling stations close at 8 p.m. We won't know how the city voted until the Registrar of Voters releases a first round of results later tonight. In Santa Clara County, almost 750,000 voters may end up voting by mail this election cycle – as of yesterday, almost half of Santa Clara County's vote-by-mail voters had already returned their ballots.

If you dropped your ballot in the mail already and want to track its progress, you can find out if it arrived at the county elections office, if the ballot was counted, and, if not, the reason why it was not counted. If you cast a provisional ballot today, you can use the same link to track the status of your vote. 

We will be posting a rolling update of election results starting tonight and continuing throughout the week – check back at
