MISSOULA – Montanans will head to the polls on June 5th to vote in the Montana primary.

This time around, Missoula County residents need to be aware of some changes to voting locations.

Folks who previously voted at the Clinton School will now vote at the Clinton Community Church on Clown Lane. Meanwhile, for people who vote at Hellgate Elementary School, you’ll vote at the Missoula Technology and Development Center on West Broadway.

Missoula County Elections Administrator Dayna Causby says the affected voters should have received a reminder card in the mail. She also advises that those folks should try to vote early.

"We’re asking that any voter that doesn’t wish to wait in line at the Hellgate precinct to come and get their absentee ballot here at the Elections Center on the Fairgrounds," Causby said. "There will be a line if voters choose to wait on Election Day to vote at the Hellgate precinct."

"If you are someone in the Hellgate precinct that is looking for another hassle-free way to drop off your ballot, the elections department will have a Drive-through drop off location at the Missoula County Fairgrounds," she added.

Starting Thursday, voters can drive up to the window, hand in their ballot and receive an “I Voted” sticker.
