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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
