Missoula County gears up for special congressional election

By Missoula Current

The Elections Center at the Missoula County Fairgrounds will serve as the central location for all voter services for the Special Congressional Election next Thursday.

The Elections Center will assist Missoula County voters by providing absentee ballot assistance, replacing ballots, offering late registration, providing an ADA accessible AutoMark voting machine, and allowing for voters to drop off their ballot at a 24/7 drive-thru location.

The Elections Center will also offer extended hours from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 20. Same-day registration opens on Election Day at 7 a.m. until 8 p.m., at which time voting closes to begin tabulating ballots.

The last day to request an absentee ballot is Wednesday, May 24 by 12:00 p.m.

The county will also launch a drive-thru ballot drop-off event starting May 18. Voters who utilize the drive-thru ballot drop off at the fairgrounds will receive a special edition “I Voted” sticker for the special congressional election.

Quantities are limited, so voters are urged to take advantage of this opportunity!

Voters should verify their voter registration information by following this link. They can also view their registration status, check that their absentee ballot has been accepted, where their polling place location is, view sample ballots, and more.

Voters who are not registered or need to update their information must appear at the Elections Center to register and receive a ballot.

Absentee ballots are due by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Absentee ballots can be delivered in person to the courthouse or fairgrounds now through Election Day. On Election Day, absentee ballots can also be dropped off at any polling place location.
