BIG SKY – Big Sky residents can register to vote or apply for an absentee ballot at the Hungry Moose Market and Deli between now and the Nov. 6 general election.

 

“We have all the forms, and our front register staff will help [people] with filling them out and sending them in,” said Jackie Robin, owner of the Hungry Moose with her husband Mark.

 

“It is also easy to get the information online,” Jackie said, “but [some people] don’t have access or just want to get it done in Big Sky.”

 

She also wanted to remind folks living on the mountain that their polling place is in the Madison County. “They’ll want to be on top of absentee ballots, so they don’t have to drive to Virginia City or Ennis on voting day.”

 

The Robins also did this during the last presidential election four years ago.

 

“We like to participate as much as we can,” Jackie said. “If you get just a few people that wouldn’t have voted, it’s worth it to me.”

 

Stop by the front register at the Hungry Moose during business hours, 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week to pick up forms or register. Voter registration forms must be postmarked by Oct. 9. Absentee ballots can be sent in or brought to the county office anytime before noon on Monday, Nov. 5.

 

Montana has also has early voting, which allows people to send in absentee ballots or go to the county courthouse to vote (via an absentee ballot) anytime within 30 days of the election.
