It is extremely important to fill it out right or it will not count. In the envelope you will get a Democratic and a Republican ballot. Make sure you only fill out ONE of them and send it back to be counted.

I was not aware that if you selected individuals on each ballot they both are ineligible and nothing counts.

Charlotte Mills, the Clerk and Recorder for Gallatin County estimates the people in her office have stuffed and sent out over 22,000 absentee ballots for the upcoming primary election.

All ballots need to be received at the elections office by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 5th or they will not count. Absentee ballots can be physically brought into the office or mailed in, but ballots postmarked June 5th will not be counted unless they arrive by 8 p.m. that day.
