THE UNIFORMED & OVERSEAS CITIZENS ABSENTEE VOTING ACT- The Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) created special provisions to make registering to vote, obtaining, returning, and tracking absentee ballots easier for members of the armed forces, their families and overseas U.S. citizens who are absent from their Montana voting residence
45 days prior to Federal & Presidential elections, ballots are available to military and overseas voters. The Secretary of State's Electronic Absentee System seamlessly registers and issues an electronic ballot for eligible UOCAVA voters. Overseas voters should use this tool if they are not currently registered as UOCAVA and wish to receive a ballot. Please call our office (406) 222-4110 with any questions or visit the Secretary of State Military & Overseas Voter Page.
