Mail-in voter registrations must be postmarked by April 25.
Voter registration closes at motor vehicle offices and state agencies April 25.
In-person voter registration at County Election offices, such as the Chase County Clerk’s office, ends at 6 p.m. MT May 2. This includes registration changes such as updating an address.
Registered voters can make requests until 4 p.m. MT on May 7 for early voting ballots to be mailed. The day before the election is the deadline for in-person early voting at County Election offices.
On Election Day, May 13, the deadline for all early voting ballots to be returned to the County Election office is 7 p.m. MT.
