The Cascade County Elections Office is preparing for the November 3rd general election, and shared the following information:
The Cascade County Elections Office is encouraging everyone to get their ballots back into the office by 8:00 pm on November 3rd, 2020.
We hope that our voters will take advantage of the opportunity to vote through the mail and to vote early. This will reduce the number of people that need to vote in person on Election Day, and will therefore reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission to voters and election workers. Our in-person operation will be socially distanced, will require that you wear a mask and will be operated according to public health guidelines. Both your right to vote and your safety are important to us.
We are anticipating a wait of 2-4 hours on election day and because we are not able to use the 4-Seasons arena, the voters will need to wait outside the facility, so please:
- If you have made a mistake on a ballot, you need to take care of that now.
- If you did not receive your ballot, you need to take care of that now.
- If you need to register or have moved, you need to take care of that now.
Our office is currently open Monday thru Friday from 7 am to 5 pm and Saturdays from 9 am to 4 pm. We will be open at Exhibition Hall on Monday, November 2nd, 2020 from 7 am to noon and then again on election day from 7 am to 8 pm.
Exhibition Hall is the only location where ballots will be available on November 2nd and on Election Day, November 3rd. We will have ballot drop locations at:
- Main Office – 325 2nd Avenue North
- Wedsworth Hall in Cascade – 13 Front Street
- Vaughn Volunteer Fire Station – 14 4th Street
- Sun River Senior Center – 13319 Highway 200, Fort Shaw
- Belt Senior Center – 19 Castner Street
