Absentee Voting

Absentee voting in Montana, also called “mail-in voting” or “by-mail voting”, is casting your vote by mail-in ballot before the day of the Election. All states will mail a ballot to you if specific criteria are met, but some states have much stricter rules to meet these conditions. The voter may return the ballot in person or by mail. With uncertainties and unknowns around USPS delivery of your "mail-in" ballot during Covid-19, you may want to check for ballot drop-off boxes in your area as an alternative way to deliver your absentee ballot.

Any registered voter may vote by absentee ballot. Absentee ballots for federal/state elections are mailed to eligible voters 25 days before election day.

Early In-person Voting

Early voting in Montana allows you to cast your vote in person before the day of the Election at specific polling locations that may differ from the Election Day locations. Voting early in person allows you to cast your vote while the number of people waiting to vote is much smaller than Election Day. Please follow the recommended CDC Covid-19 safety guidelines.

Early voting is essentially another term for requesting an absentee ballot before Election Day. Since 1999, Montanans can request an absentee ballot without an excuse. Do note, while you can cast your vote early, results are not released until Election Day.
