MONTANA ABSENTEE BALLOTS

Who Can Absentee Vote in Montana?

Any registered voter may vote by absentee ballot.

How Can I Acquire an Absentee Ballot?

To vote absentee, you must first apply for an absentee ballot. Obtain an application for an absentee ballot online here.

Registered voters can also vote absentee in person at their local election office up to 30 days before the election (contact information)
