General Election: Early Voting Starts September 18

County clerks to begin sending ballots to voters this week

And the pandemic has created an unprecedented need for alternatives to in-person voting.

Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington and Utah are among the states which hold elections with universal mail-in voting. "Most ballots cast in Montana elections - even with polling-place elections - are mail ballots", says Audrey McCue, elections administrator for Lewis & Clark County.

"Elections officials will route your ballot to the appropriate county elections office to be counted", Mahood said. This site can also be used to request that your ballot be sent to another address. It is a postal ballot for when a voter can not or does not want to attend a polling station. All registered voters will automatically receive their ballot in the mail, and are strongly urged to cast it as soon as they receive it.

Ultimately, the key is taking steps to ensure your individual voting voice is heard during what is expected to be an election that generates high voter participation - especially if you plan to vote by mail, according to Anderson. In Wisconsin, the legal deadline to request a ballot is October 29, but state officials don't want voters to wait that long.

Almost 50 local election officials sent a letter to Gov. Chris Sununu this week requesting the ability to more clearly mark the voter checklist to show that someone's absentee ballot has been inspected before Election Day.

"Once you have received your ballot, if you know how you are voting, there is no need to wait", said Secretary Way.

"We're about $5 million shy", said Adams. In May, Twitter labelled two of Trump's tweets regarding mail-in voting as "unsubstantiated" and accused him of making false claims. This June, primary voters requested 26,000 absentee votes - the current record. The 46 counties doing all-mail ballots will accept those registrations and mail the ballots.

Fellowes High School in Pembroke closed after three COVID-19 cases
"This will provide ample time for our staff to deep clean the building and the Department of Health to conduct contact tracing". The town's public schools opened this week with a hybrid mode of instruction in place of both in-person and remote learning.

14 states had sued Trump's plans to reduce the efficiency of the postal service.

So, what are the facts?

Inactive voters have to update their registration information in order to get a mail ballot. Ballots will be mailed no later than October 16. They have to be filled out at home and posted or put into ballot drop boxes. The Secretary of State's office said they are covering the cost with federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act money aimed at helping states handle elections during COVID-19 pandemic. With states having their own rules, the verification process varies. Voters can track their absentee ballot using the absentee ballot look-up tool available here.

Place the voted ballot inside the provided interior envelope and SIGN the envelope on the signature line. Verifying signatures uses a mix software and staff to check signatures with those on file.

If you believe you may not safely have a witness present while completing the absentee ballot for the November 3, 2020 Election, you are not required to have a witness present. Voters can reach out to their County Clerk, County Board of Elections, County Superintendent of Elections, or call the state voter information/protection hotline at 1-877-NJVOTER (1-877-658- 6837). The option for early voting in Minnesota runs until Monday, Nov. 2, although dates and hours may vary based on where you live in the state.

In less than four weeks, county election workers across Montana will start the verification and counting process on hundreds of thousands of mailed ballots, in the first "all-mail" general election for 46 of the state's 56 counties. But can you give us a sense of how big this year's ballot might be?
