MISSOULA — The June 2 elections are fast approaching and with the COVID-19 pandemic things are being conducted a little differently this time around.
This election is a completely mail-in ballot cycle made possible by a directive from Gov. Steve Bullock back in March.
So, if you are voting in Missoula County and have not received a ballot yet, you can contact the Missoula County Election Office at (406) 258-4751. You can also check your registration at mt.gov/voterinfo.
You can mail your ballot in or drop it off at the elections office voter information area where they can also help you with any sort of registration issues.
The elections office is operating using social distancing guidelines so keep that in mind especially when it comes to planning for election day.
“If you wait until June 2 we will make sure to help you but we will have to wait to help ensure that we are practicing social distancing. Giving people time to vote their ballots and we will serve every voter in line by 8 o’clock but we are expecting longer than normal wait times for people who come in on June 2.” Missoula County Elections Office Administrator Bradley Seamen said.
There have been 5,000 ballots returned to the county elections office and if yours might be one of them give the office a call.
