How cool is that?

I want to let you know that we received your Absent Voter Ballot on (they'll put the date and time here). Thank you for voting! Your signature on the envelope has been verified. We will open and count your ballot on Election Day.
You may have received an email and or a text message about TrackMIBallot. These are legitimate messages, but note that that system only uses postal scans, so would not show any drop box or in person ballot return. Also, sometimes the post office delivers mail without scanning it, so the mail tracking is not 100%.
Again, your ballot has been received and accepted. (Chris Swope Email)
And that TrackMIBallot thing...

Check the TrackMIBallot FAQ section if you have more questions.

And if you haven't dropped your ballot in the mail as of your reading this article, the SOS has suggested you use a ballot drop box or deliver it to your local clek by hand yourself.
