46 of 56 Montana counties support mail ballot for special election

March 17, 2017

Thursday was the deadline for county commissions across the state to decide if they would support a mail ballot for the upcoming special election to select Montana's sole congressman.

By late afternoon, Ravalli County Clerk and Recorder Regina Plettenberg, president of the Montana Association of Clerk and Recorders, had learned that 46 of the state's 56 counties had passed a resolution to support a mail ballot.

Only two - Richland and Bighorn - opted to hold that election at the poll.
