The mail-in elections for three Ravalli County towns have been mailed to registered voters, according to County Clerk and Recorder Regina Plettenberg.

The ballots were mailed Wednesday, November 18, and must be returned by 8 p.m. November 7th.

Plettenberg said that ballots for Hamilton, Darby and Stevensville include return envelopes or you can bring the voted ballot (in the secrecy envelope) to the election office at the Ravalli County Administration Center on South 4th in Hamilton. It is the only location for ballots to be returned. Plettenberg's election officers will count the mail-in ballots November 7.

She said the Corvallis School District levy election will be held on election day, November 7th, with the lone polling place open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Corvallis School. However, Corvallis voters who have signed up for absentee voting were also sent ballots Wednesday.

If you are expecting a ballot, but have not received one by Monday, October 23, contact the Ravalli County Elections Office 375-6550 or the Clerk and Recorders Office at 375-3555.
