Primary Election Ballots Mailed Last Week
Ballots for the June 2 Primary Election were mailed out last week from the county election offices.
“This will be an all-mail ballot election; regular polling places will not be open. Voters can, however, still register and vote at the county elections offices up to and on Election Day. Everything Montana voters need to know is available on our Secretary of State website at sosmt. gov,” Deputy Secretary of State Christi Jacobsen said.
Jacobsen also stated, “Check out the My Voter page of our website to make sure your information is correct. If you need to update your information, contact your local election office.”
Roosevelt County Sheriff Jason Frederick asked the Northern Plains Independent to explain to readers that the public safety mill levy, while described as “additional,” is an ongoing budgetary item. Without the levy, said Frederick, two deputies will have to be cut from the department.
