Gallatin County Election Department


For immediate release: May 8, 2020

Ballots for the 2020 Primary Election will be mailed today to all active voters in Gallatin County. As a response to COVID-19 concerns, this year’s primary is an all-mail election.

Ballots must be received no later than 8 p.m. on Election Day, June 2, in order to be counted. Postmarks cannot be accepted.

No polls will be open for this election. However, election officials will be collecting ballots on Election Day in the parking lot of the usual polling locations.

Voters are asked to seal their envelopes with tape rather than saliva.

In-person voting will only occur at the Election Office at the Gallatin County Courthouse, room 210 at 311 W. Main St. in downtown Bozeman.

In order to minimize the need to appear in-person to register to vote during the regular registration period, the Election Department will begin accepting registration applications via email.

Registrants must use this form and they must print the form, sign it, and scan or take a picture of it before sending it in. Stylus or typed signatures will not be accepted.

Procedures to help keep the public and our staff safe are currently in place in the Election Office. To follow social distancing guidelines, only five voters are allowed into the office at one time. And we recommend calling or emailing our office to see if it is necessary to appear in-person or if the issue can be resolved over the phone or by email.

To contact the Gallatin County Election Office, call 406-582-3060 or email gallatin.elections@gallatin.mt.gov.

Media at Willow Creek School

For immediate release: May 6, 2020

From Bonnie Lower, Willow Creek School Principal and Superintendent:

Willow Creek School will be reopening its doors for students on Thursday, May 7. Students will begin arriving at school around 7:30 a.m. with the first bell beginning class at 8 a.m.

School officials are aware of media interest, including from national outlets, in this reopening. Our top priority is that our students feel comfortable and safe to return to their school. So we are asking all media who plan on coming to the school to be aware of the following.

There will be a designated media area directly across from the school on Main Street in Willow Creek. Media will NOT be allowed on school property. Media are asked to stay in the designated area at all times while students and their families are arriving at the school.

We requested the assistance of the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office to make sure kids feel safe as they return to their school.

We respectfully ask that media do not approach children or their parents at bus stops or anywhere other than the designated area across from the school where the media can get the necessary footage.

Gallatin County Sheriff’s deputies will be patrolling the areas where students and their parents will be and Sheriff Brian Gootkin and Principal Lower will be present at the school on Thursday morning to help answer any reporter questions or concerns.

Thank you for your cooperation.
