FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- California's General Election, also known as the midterm election, took place on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

Now that the election is over make sure your vote was counted if you voted by mail or cast a provisional ballot.

All elections offices in California allow voters to check the status of vote-by-mail or provisional ballots, many even offer an online lookup tool. Check the listings below.

If your elections office says that it has not received or counted your ballot yet, know that it may take a few days.

Voting by mail is more popular than ever, and ballots are counted as long as they are postmarked by election day, even if it arrives up to three days later. That means county elections offices often have large stacks of envelopes to process, so it can take a few days to scan all the envelopes as arrived, check signatures and scan the ballots.

The provisional voting process can take even longer, especially under California's conditional voter registration process. Elections officials must research each provisional ballot to make sure the voter is eligible before the votes can be counted.

So keep checking over the days to come to make sure your vote was counted.
