HELENA- County election offices across Montana are busy mailing out absentee ballots today for the June 5th primary election.
Montana Secretary of State Linda McCulloch was the first person to cast her absentee ballot in Lewis & Clark County.
She says a record breaking 170,000 ballots will hit the mail, and says that in each election, more and more people are choosing to vote absentee.
"It's really easy and really slick. You can come down to the county elections office and you can fill out an absentee ballot form and get your ballot right there. Or you can take it home and vote it or you can vote it right here. It's just really simple," McCulloch noted.
Voters can view a sample ballot on the Secretary of State's website as well as track the status of their absentee ballot.
They can even download a digital I VOTED sticker and share it on Facebook or Twitter.
