You can track your ballot and know it was received, but election officials can't mark whether it's been "accepted" or "rejected" before the election. That's about 200,000 less than the entire voting turnout in the 2016 Presidential Election. A second upload is expected between 9:30 and 10:30 p.m., with a third release of data between 11 and 11:30 p.m. Tip: Voting during normal business hours may help you avoid long lines.
