A Message from the Stillwater County Election Administrator:
Many of you have been wondering what the status is for the upcoming Federal General Election. After consulting with the Commissioners, Public Health and our Election Judges, it has been decided that Stillwater County will be conducting the election by polling place. First and foremost I would like to thank all the election judges who have volunteered to work this election at their polling places. Without them it would not have been possible to consider a polling place election. They have my gratitude and I can't thank them enough!! After consulting with public health we will have all safety measures in place for the safety of both the voters and our judges. If you are an absentee voter you will still get your ballot by mail as you would with any regularly scheduled election. If you normally attend the polls, the polls will be open for their regularly scheduled hours which will be posted on the Stillwater County website. If you are not comfortable attending the polls, you can request an absentee ballot. Absentee ballot requests are available on the County website, in the Stillwater County Clerk & Recorders office or by clicking on the following link:
Please contact our office at 406-322-8000 if you have any questions, we would be happy to answer them!
Voter Registration: Please complete the Voter Registration Form and return it to the Stillwater County Elections Office.
How to vote by Absentee Ballot: Any registered voter may vote by absentee ballot, even if he or she is able to vote in person on Election Day. To vote absentee, you must first apply for an absentee ballot. Applications are available during a period beginning 75 days before Election Day and ending at noon on the day before the election. You may pick up an application at your local election office, or you may call the office and ask to have an application mailed to you. You can also download the application and mail or drop it off at the election office. Please call the Election Office if you have any questions.

VOTER REGISTRATION CLOSES 30 DAYS PRIOR TO ELECTION DAY
Beginning with elections after July 1, 2006, individuals have the right to register and vote up to and including on Election Day at the county election office, if they miss the deadline to register to vote 30 days or more before the election. An elector who chooses this option must still have been a resident of Montana for at least 30 days before the election. A statewide voter database will ensure that individuals do not vote in multiple counties.
