Voters urged to return absentee ballots early


Havre Daily News staff

The Hill County Clerk and Recorder’s Office is reminding people who are voting absentee in the primary election that ballots must be received at their clerk and recorder’s office before 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 5.

Ballots postmarked June 5 or earlier but received later than 8 that night will not be counted in the election.

Voters are advised that at this point they should probably drop off their ballots to their clerk and recorder’s office rather than mailing them.

People can go to My Voter Page at the Montana Secretary of State website at https://app.mt.gov/voterinfo to see if they are registered, verify their address, verify the location of their polling place, to check the status of their absentee ballot and view a sample ballot.

People who want an absentee ballot must make the request in writing at their clerk and recorder’s office. The request must be signed by the person who wants the ballot and must have the date of birth of that person. It must also list the address to which the ballot should be mailed. Each elector must sign for their own ballot. People can designate someone else to pick up their ballot, but the request must be signed by the elector.

People who are not registered can register by appearing in person with identification at their clerk and recorder’s office and voting.

Absentee balloting and late registration will close at noon Monday, June 4, then late registration will re-open Election Day, Tuesday, June, 5, at 7 a.m. at the clerk and recorder’s office and close at 8 p.m.
