MISSOULA — The upcoming June 2 federal primary election will now be done completely by mail across the state and in Missoula County.

The announcement comes after Governor Steve Bullock issued a directive on Wednesday that mail-in ballots will be used for the upcoming election due to COVID-19 concerns.

The ballots for the primary election will be mailed to voters on May 8.

Voters will be able to update their information for the primary via the mail and not risk unnecessary exposure until 5 p.m. Tuesday, May 26.

You can click here to confirm their voting status or contact the elections office by phone at (406) 258-4751 or via email for any updates.

The Missoula County Elections Office remains open to the public, but voter registration forms, absentee ballot applications, and other documents -- excluding ballots -- should be placed in the outside a dropbox.

However, between May 27 and 12 p.m. on June 1 voters need to appear in person to make changes to their registration at the new Elections Center at 140 North Russell Street.

Elections officials are asking that no more than two people are inside the office at a time.
