Montana Governor Allowing Counties to Conduct Upcoming Elections by Mail
Gov. Steve Bullock issued a directive on Wednesday authorizing counties to conduct upcoming elections entirely by mail.
The directive allows counties to decide whether to adopt a mail ballot for the June primary election.
Montanans are still permitted to vote in person during the 30-day voting window, even if they have received a mail ballot.
If counties choose to participate in mail voting for the June primary, they must submit plans to do so.
Mail ballots would be released on May 8 and early voting would be available in person through the close of the primary election on June 2.
Voters will not be required to pay postage to return their ballots by mail.
