Early ballots are out to the voters and they must return them to the local election office by 8 pm, Tuesday, November 8, 2016. If you are an early voter, remember, the campaigns track the ballots and often stop the campaign mailers and phone calls to the voters as the ballots are returned. Otherwise, plan to vote Tuesday, November 8, 2016. The Montana Secretary of State’s web page has the location for each registered voters polling location, many have changed.

If recent elections and the current polls are any indication, this year’s elections will see many close races. Some Montana Legislative races will come down to less than 100 votes between the candidates and several of the state wide races are within the proverbial polling margins of error. In Montana every vote counts, so make sure you vote!
