Montana counties to conduct primary election by mail
By AMY BETH HANSON Associated Press
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Montana's June 2 primary will be conducted by mail in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
The ballots will be mailed out on May 8.
The U.S. Postal Service recommends ballots be mailed back a week before the election. Same-day registration and in-person voting will still be allowed.
Counties will set the locations for late registration and ballot submission.
County clerks say a new law that allows counties to begin opening mailed ballots on the Thursday before Election Day to prepare them for counting should lead to quicker results on election nights.
