Gallatin County Drives To West Yellowstone To Pick Up Ballots

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Unofficial results for the municipal election in Gallatin County were released around 11:30 on Tuesday night after election officials had to drive two-hours to West Yellowstone and back to pick up ballots.

For those voters who did not mail in their election ballots, drop-off boxes were located in Bozeman, Belgrade and West Yellowstone.

Election officials tell us the ballots can only be counted at the Gallatin County Courthouse in Bozeman.

Gallatin County Clerk and Recorder, Charlotte Mills said the county had volunteers at each drop-off box right at eight o'clock to pick up the ballots.

"In order to count them, we would have to hire election judges and there would have to be a board that go in and count them," said Mills. "It's just as efficient as it would be to go drive up there pick up and come back."

In Bozeman, Carson Taylor was elected the next mayor. Chris Mehl and I-ho Pomeroy was elected as the City Commissioners.
