A Voter's Guide to Late Registration
The deadline to register as a voter in Montana is 30 days prior to Election Day. However, late registration allows a voter to register or change their voter registration information after the close of regular registration and vote in the election beginning 29 days prior to the election. Late registration is open from Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Fairgrounds. On the Monday before the Election, late registration closes at noon and reopens on Election Day from 7 a.m. until close of polls at 8 p.m. Late Registrants can only receive absentee ballots at the Fairgrounds.
Replacement ballots may be obtained at the Elections Center at the Missoula County Fairgrounds weekdays between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. as well as during the extended hours listed above.
Ballots are unable to be forwarded through the postal service. If a mailing address is no longer active, the ballot will return to our office. Upon return to our office as undeliverable, we immediately mail a forwardable confirmation postcard to capture the voter's new address information. If voters wish to pick up their ballot, they may do so in person at the Fairgrounds Election Center. If an individual would like to pick up an undeliverable ballot on behalf of another voter, our office must be provided with a signed request by the voter granting permission.
Should I visit the Elections Center on Election Day to vote?
If you have an ACTIVE status and your information reflects what is listed under the MY VOTER PAGE, you must vote at your designated polling place. On Election Day, the Elections Center is reserved for new voters or those whose information has changed-such as an address change. The issuing of Absentee Ballots closes at noon Monday, November 3rd and does not reopen on Election Day.
