After much discussion, Richland County will be having an all-mail ballot election for the Nov. 3, 2020 General Election to keep uniformity and fairness throughout the state. With the majority of the counties going with an all-mail ballot and multiple media outlets and candidate sites putting out all-mail specific instructions, voters are getting confused with conflicting information. Richland County will no longer be having a polling place election as we have previously stated.
As per the Governor’s directive, in-person voting will still be permitted. Voting booths will be set up in the Courthouse for in-person voting. Ballots may be dropped off in person at the Clerk & Recorder’s office.
Ballots will be mailed Friday, Oct. 9. Ballots will only be mailed to active registered voters. Voter status and address may be checked by contacting the Clerk & Recorder’s office at 406-433-1708 or at https://app.mt.gov/voterinfo/. Inactive voters will need to fill out a registration card to become active to receive a ballot. For security, ballots cannot be forwarded. Change of address forms and registration forms are available at the Clerk & Recorder’s office or online.
