MISSOULA — Tuesday is Election Day, and if you haven’t cast your vote yet, there’s still time -- but there are a few things you should note.

At this time, if you have not voted yet, you should plan to vote in person at the Missoula County Elections Office -- or at one of the drive-thru ballot drop off locations. It is too late to mail in a ballot.

Residents can vote early and in-person on Monday at the Elections Center at 140 North Russell Street until 7 p.m.

People planning on voting or registering to vote on Election Day need to be in line at the Missoula County Elections Center by 8 p.m.

There will be a shuttle running between McCormick Park and the Elections Center every 15 minutes on Election Day, starting at 5 a.m. and running until midnight.

Voters are encouraged to park there and use the shuttle to help alleviate congestion at the Elections Center. ASUM Transportation is providing the shuttle bus.

People who simply need to drop off a ballot on Election Day can do so at one of 11 drop-off locations around Missoula County.

There’s no telling how long wait times will be at the Elections Center on Tuesday, so Missoula County Elections Administrator Bradley Seaman says you should be prepared for anything.

"Depending on the number of people who come to vote in person, that will dictate how long our wait times are now this is our same-day registration office,” he said.

“So, for a voter who did not ever receive a ballot, or a voter who needs to update their registration status this is the only location that they can come to, and with both of those compounding, we want to make sure that voters are prepared,” Seaman added.
