Voting in 2020 looks very different across the country. People will be voting by absentee ballot in record numbers and with the postal system facing major delays, the question of whether your vote counts can be an all too literal one. Fortunately, most states and the D.C. have set up systems for voters to check whether or not their ballot was received.

The first step, of course, is registered to vote and requesting or filling out that ballot. Once that's done, the states below let you enter your name and date of birth to find out the status of your ballot.
