Many states have set up a system that enables voters to track their absentee or mail ballots. We deserve to know whether the Board of Elections received and accepted our ballots. And will be counting them before election day.
WHY CAN'T WESTCHESTER VOTERS TRACK OUR ABSENTEE BALLOTS- TO SEE IF THE BOARD OF ELECTIONS RECEIVED THE BALLOTS AND WILL COUNT THEM?
TRACKING BALLOTS DONE IN MANY STATES IN THE UNITED STATES
A Colorado sofware company i3logix developed such a system that tracks by-mail ballots like packages. North Carolina has signed on to the system that enables voters to track their ballot to make sure it arrived safely and is being counted. According to the Washington Post (September 18) in California there is a new election website : "Where's my ballot." Voters type in their name, birthday and zip code and a minute later they are signed up for updates. They get a text when ballots are in the mail, as its on its way back to election officials and eventually, counted. This "builds confidence in democracy."
I believe that NYC is trying to implement a tracking by mail ballot program but believe that Westchester has not. And, if they have one no one knows about it. Most counties in NYS also do not have a tracking by mail ballot program. Why not? This is the most important election in a lifetime. People who vote by mail deserve to know whether their vote is being counted.PAUL FEINERGreenburgh Town Supervisor
