MISSOULA – Voter registration is coming to a close Tuesday evening across Montana, although county elections offices can still help you get signed up if you visit in person.

Tuesday, October 9 is the statewide deadline for voter registration, with elections offices closing 5 p.m. Tuesday afternoon. But most voters, including those in Missoula County, should be able to access online voter registration forms that can still be completed and mailed Tuesday evening. In, Missoula that means dropping the form off at the post office by 8 p.m.

Missoula County Elections Administrator Dayna Causby says voters don’t need to include a copy of their driver’s license with those forms. However, they need to fill out the form with a driver’s license number, or the last four digits of their Social Security number to confirm their identity.

Starting on Wednesday, any registrations, address changes or name changes will require an in-person visit at an elections office. The Missoula County Elections Office is operating at the Missoula County Fairgrounds, although access has changed because of construction that’s underway.
