Absentee ballots for the primary election go out on Monday.
Charlotte Mills, the Clerk and Recorder for Gallatin County, says they're about to send out thousands of absentee ballots.
"Right now for the primary we are sending pretty close to 22,000 absentee ballots," she said.
Mills said absentee ballots are sometimes a good choice for people so they have more time to research the issues and the politicians.
"I think a lot of voters are finding that it's a convenient way to vote. It comes to them in the mail, they don't have to make arrangements to take off work or stand in line if they polling place is busy. When it comes if they see a name that they don't know who it is or an issue, they have time to read the issue or investigate and find out something about the election before they actually vote it," said Mills.
Their office is also busy getting voters registered and collecting mail-in ballots for next week's school election.
"A week ago we were doing this for the school election where we actually did 36,000 ballots that went out. Then this one is coming right now, so it typically takes about four days for us to get everything together, get it verified then its all ready for mailing," Mills said.
