MISSOULA – Absentee voters in Missoula County can now cast their ballots without ever leaving the comfort of their cars.

The drive-thru ballot drop-off is now up and running at the Missoula County Fairgrounds.

Ballots can be dropped off from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Monday and from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Election Day.

Drivers should use the west entrance on South Avenue near the intersection with Oxford Street this year as the normally used entrance 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.

The Missoula County Elections Center is also offering 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. on Saturday, November 3.

Local elections officials caution that folks who wait until Election Day to take care of voting-related issues will likely experience long wait times.

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.
