Election officials clear up confusion on municipal election

GREAT FALLS, Mont. – With general elections quickly approaching, election officials want to make sure your vote is fairly counted.

There has been some confusion among voters this election cycle about what positions and initiatives they can vote for.

Because candidates have placed signs in rural areas outside of town, the election office is receiving a large number of phone calls requesting ballots from people outside city limits.

Along with the municipal election in Great Falls, the office is also running a separate election for the towns of Belt and Cascade, and each resident will only be able to cast a vote for their own town.
