Regular registration closes 30 days prior to any election. Late registration begins the next day and ends at the close of polls on election day (except from noon until 5:00 p.m. on the day before election day). Late Registration for Deer Lodge County is located at the Elections or Clerk and Recorder’s office located on the second floor of the courthouse at 800 Main. When a voter registers during the late registration period, they will not appear in the Official Register (poll) books and will be given a provisional ballot at the polling place. If a late registrant wishes to vote, not with a provisional ballot, they will need to vote in person at the Elections or Clerk and Recorder’s office anytime during the late registration period.
