Want to cast your ballot without even leaving your car? Starting tomorrow, you can!
Absentee voters in Missoula County can take advantage of the drive-thru ballot drop-off at the Missoula County Fairgrounds, which opens Thursday, Nov. 1.
Hours for the drop-off are:
- Thursday and Friday, Nov. 1-2: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Saturday, Nov. 3: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Monday, Nov. 5: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Tuesday, Nov. 6 (Election Day): 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
To access the drop-off, use the west entrance on South Avenue, near the intersection with Oxford Street. (The east South Avenue entrance, which was used in previous years, is closed due to construction.) An additional drive-thru, which will be accessible through the entrance on Russell Street near the intersection with Fairview Avenue, will be open on Election Day only. Check out the map above detailing the routes.
In addition to convenience, voters who use the drive-thru ballot drop-off will receive a coveted “I Voted” sticker that many absentee voters often go without.
To better serve Missoula County voters, the Elections Center also will offer extended and weekend hours through Election Day. The office is now open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Saturday, Nov. 3.
Do you still need to register to vote? Change your address? Request an absentee ballot? Don’t wait until Election Day — please let us help you with your election-related needs as soon as possible! Voters who wait until Election Day will likely experience long wait times. We know many people can’t make it to the center before Nov. 6 due to work and other obligations, so if you can, make it a priority!
In addition to voter registration, Elections Center staff can help with all voter services, including signing up for an absentee ballot, address changes, retrieving undeliverable ballots and issuing replacement ballots.
