Voter FAQs


(Q) I am not signed up for absentee. Will I still get a ballot?

(A) If an election is being conducted by mail-ballot, all active registered Gallatin County voters will receive a ballot.

(Q) Do I have to return my ballot in the mail?

(A) No. Absentee and mail ballots can be dropped off at places of deposit or the Gallatin County Elections Department. A full list of drop locations can be found on the instructions that are included in the ballot packet received in the mail.

(Q) How do I know if my ballot has been accepted?

(A) For federal and statewide elections, you can track your ballot status using the My Voter Page at https://app.mt.gov/voterinfo, from “Sent” to “Processed” to “Accepted”. In all other elections, you may contact the Elections Department.

(Q) How do you verify my signature?

(A) All signed forms received at the elections office are scanned into the elector’s record, giving multiple exhibits for each voter’s signature.

(Q) When is my ballot due by?

(A) Ballots must be in our possession—either in the office or at a place of deposit—by 8 PM on Election Day.

(Q) When do ballots get counted?

(A) In Gallatin County, we begin counting ballots the Monday before Election Day.

(Q) What if my signature does not match?

(A) If our office is unable to process a ballot, we are obligated to inform the voter to rectify the problem in the most expedient method available (13-13-245, MCA). This is normally conducted via phone call.

(Q) What do I use to mark my ballot?

(A) Use blue or black ink, as red is not readable by the tabulators. Do not use a felt-tipped pen, as it will bleed through the ballot and not be readable by the tabulators.

(Q) Can mail/absentee ballots be forwarded?

(A) No. Due to postal regulations, ballots are neither forwarded nor held. These ballots are immediately returned to the Elections Department and a forwardable notice is sent to the voter notifying them that their ballot is undeliverable as addressed.

(Q) How do I cancel my voter registration?

(A) Submit a written request for cancellation that includes your name, date of birth, and the residential address where you were registered to vote in Gallatin County. Sign the request and email it to gallatin.elections@gallatin.mt.gov or mail it to 311 West Main Street, Room 210, Bozeman, MT 59715.
