How to Vote at the Last Minute in Missoula
Don’t worry voting procrastinators, it’s not too late to influence the course of your nation’s fate. Unlike most states, in Montana, would-be voters can register right up through election day.
Voter registration is closed over the weekend, but it will still be possible to register on both Monday, November 5 and Tuesday, November 6.
- To register on Monday, go to the Elections Center at the Missoula fairgrounds between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. Take the South Ave. entrance and follow the yellow signs.
- On Election day (this coming Tuesday!), it is still possible to register at the Missoula Fairgrounds. Remember, registration is only possible between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m.
If you have an absentee ballot, but still haven’t turned it in there are three places to drop it off in person:
- At the Elections Center in the Missoula county fairgrounds.
- At the 2nd floor of the Courthouse annex.
- In the blue drop box in the Courthouse parking lot located on the west side of the building.
Finally, all kinds of information can be found on the Montana Secretary of State’s website. Anyone that has already voted can track their ballot by going to the My Voter Page. The My Voter Page will also explain where to go for those that chose to vote at a polling booth.
All polling booth voters should take the time to look a sample ballot, which also happens to be located on the My Voter Page. The 2012 ballot is four pages long and even political insiders can have difficulty on some of the races.
