The Municipal & Urban Transportation District Mail Ballot Election will be held on Tuesday, November 5th, 2013. Active and provisional voters who are registered to vote within the City & Urban Transportation District limits will be mailed a ballot today, October 21st, 2013.

Voters can track their ballot through the different mailing and processing stages by visiting www.MissoulaVotes.com . The ballot tracking application will detail if a voter’s ballot was accepted, or why it may have been rejected in order for the elector to quickly resolve the issue.

If an elector did not receive a ballot, they should visit the My Voter Page, accessible via www.MissoulaVotes.com or the Secretary of State’s website www.sos.mt.gov. The My Voter Page application will provide the voter’s registration status: Active, Provisional, or Inactive and detail the meaning for each. Voters can also verify their mailing address through the My Voter Page to ensure they receive a ballot.

Voters who are not registered in Missoula County or who have an inactive status may visit the Election Center at the Missoula County Fairgrounds for late registration. Our Late Registration center is fully staffed to offer quick and friendly service and is ready to assist voters with all of their needs.
