MADISON, Wis. (AP) — State elections officials say they're making headway on streamlining absentee ballot tracking by using so-called intelligent bar codes, after a crush of complaints from voters who never received ballots in this spring's election.

Wisconsin Elections Commission Administrator Meagan Wolfe wrote in a report to commissioners ahead of a Thursday evening meeting that staff has been meeting with the U.S. Postal Service since April and last month began adding intelligent bar codes to outgoing ballot envelopes. The codes can be scanned at postal centers, verifying that ballots are in the mail.
