for city election
Absentee ballots are now available at the Hill County Clerk and Recorder's Office in the County Courthouse. Qualified electors wishing to vote by absentee ballot in the Nov. 8 city election can request an absentee ballot from the Clerk and Recorder's Office, or can vote in person in the office.
People who want an absentee ballot sent to them must make the request in writing. The written request must be signed by the person and must state the elector's date of birth, and the address to which is should be mailed or the name of the person designated to pick up the ballot. Each person must sign for his or her own ballot. No one may request a ballot for another person.
Absentee balloting at the Clerk and Recorder's Office will close at noon on Nov. 7.
Absentee ballots must be received no later than 8 p.m. on Nov. 8. College students, military members and those who are out of the county temporarily are urged to request a ballot as early as possible to ensure that the ballot will have sufficient time to be returned for counting.
Written absentee ballot requests should be sent to: Hill County Clerk and Recorder, 315 Fourth St., Havre, MT 59501, or faxed to 265-2445.
