Here is some important information for Tuesday’s all-mail election.

Since it’s an all-mail election, polling places are not open in Missoula County, but there are a few drop-off locations.

Ballots may be dropped off at the Western Montana Fairgrounds. Drive-thru service is available at the main entrance, off of South Avenue.

Other drop-off locations:

  • Target Range Elementary School
  • Hellgate Elementary School
  • Lolo Elementary School
  • Clinton Elementary School
  • Potomac-Greenough Community Center

The law changed last fall as a result of the voter-approved LR 129.  Under the new law, voters who return more than one ballot must complete a “Ballot Collector Information” form.

  • The form was included with voters’ ballots and it’s available online or at drop-off locations.
  • Voters may drop off up to six ballots (in addition to their own) and they must provide their information and signature.
  • They must also note the name and contact information for the voter and their relationship (family, household, acquaintance or caregiver) to the voter.

Missoula Election officials encourage voters to complete the new form before they come to drop off ballots in order to minimize wait times.

New registrants or voters with changes to their registration may do same-day registration and voting at the Fairgrounds in Building 15.

Ballots are due by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 7.
