The Elections Center at the Missoula County Fairgrounds is the central location for all voter services for the Special Congressional Election on Thursday, May 25, 2017. The Elections Center is ready to assist Missoula County electors 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 offers extended hours from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 20. Same Day Registration is open on Election Day from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., at which time voting closes to begin tabulating ballots.
The last day to request an absentee ballot is by noon on Wednesday, May 24.
The Missoula County Elections Office urges voters to take advantage of their regular and extended hours before Election Day to help avoid Election Day wait times.
A special drive-thru ballot dropoff event will launch one week before the election on May 18. Voters who use the drive-thru ballot dropoff 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 visiting www.MyVoterPageMT.com to 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.
