Your vote matters. Make sure it’s counted.
Your absentee or vote by mail may not count. The US Postal Service has already warned that mail-in ballots may not reach election officials in time to be counted in 46 states.
Chat with Ballot Bot to learn how to ensure your vote counts.
Protecting your vote is easy. Follow the steps below.
1. Follow the rules
In the NY primaries, nearly 100,000 mail-in ballots were invalidated because their postage-paid envelope did not get a postmark. Ballots are also invalidated when they aren’t completed correctly or delivered to the wrong election office.
Ask our bot for “voting rules” and it will provide you with a link. Ballot Bot currently knows about addresses in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
Don’t see your state? We are adding more states by request. Just tell Ballot Bot which state you want us to add, and it will be added to our tracking spreadsheet. For example: “add locations for Pennsylvania”.
2. Hand-deliver your ballot
The US Postal Service has suffered crippling cuts. Don’t rely on them to deliver your vote on time. Ensure your vote is counted by physically delivering your ballot to a secure ballot drop box or your local election office.
Use our chatbot on this page to find your ballot drop-off locations. Ballot Bot currently knows about addresses in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
3. Create an audit trail
Take nothing for granted and create an audit trail of your vote.
- Take a picture of yourself with your completed ballot
- Record yourself dropping your ballot into the secure ballot drop box
- Tell others that you voted

Pez.AI’s data-driven chatbots have earned global recognition
Our founder advocates transparency and accessibility as the foundation of reproducible science. Transparency and accessibility are also critical ingredients of a strong democracy. Transparency prevents corruption and cronyism. Accessibility ensures all people regardless of background can exercise their rights as citizens.
Voting rules must be publicly accessible, easily found, and easily understood. Unfortunately, election websites are not a paragon of good user experience. So we crawled websites and PDFs to collect this information and present it in an easy way: enter your address and get your voting locations. It’s the least we can do to support our democracy.
