Absentee voting is when voters receive their official ballots by mail. Individuals must complete the Application for Absentee Ballot in order to receive their voting packet via mail. Voters absent from the polls on Election Day because they are out of town, are ill, or simply prefer the convenience, can still cast their vote with an absentee ballot. Absentee voting is sometimes referred to as "voting by mail" since it allows the individual to cast their ballot from home.
If you think your ballot might not be received by mail on Election Day, you can drop it off at the Lake County Election Office in the Lake County Courthouse at 106 4th Avenue E in Polson, Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm and on Election Day from 7 am to 8 pm. Ballots must be received in the Election Office by 8 pm on Election Day. Do not mail ballots on Election Day they won't reach us in time to be counted.
