The Lewis and Clark County Elections Department is preparing to mail out about 21,000 municipal election ballots Wednesday.

Lewis and Clark County Elections Supervisor Audrey McCue said Tuesday that ballots will be mailed to about 19,600 Helena residents and about 1,000 East Helena residents. 

McCue said voters registered under either a Helena or East Helena address should expect to receive a ballot within seven days.

Unlike the 2020 general election, which featured return envelopes with paid postage, the 2021 municipal election return envelopes will require a stamp.

Ballots are due back to the county elections department, 316 N. Park Ave., no later than 8 p.m. on election night, Nov. 2. McCue said postmarked ballots received after the deadline will not be counted.
