About the Bozeman League
The Bozeman League publishes the Citizen's Guide to Government which lists Bozeman and Gallatin County officials and committees along with their contact information; publishes a Voter's Guide which offers information about the candidates in their own words; registers voters; and holds public candidate forums before elections. Aside from "election work" we look at and advocate for issues that members have studied and agreed upon. Many of our issues are the basis for fair and democratic government practices.
The Bozeman League meets at 11:45 on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month from September through May. Programs are typically on a local, state or national topic of concern to League members. Some past topics included: the Affordable Care Act, coal trains going through Bozeman and a legislative wrap-up after the conclusion of the legislative session.

Information for May 8th Ballots and June 2nd Primary
Voting Information - There are two mail-in elections coming up. Ballots are being sent out for the first on April 17. On May 8, ballots will be sent out for the primary. While you will be able to turn them in in person at the Gallatin County Courthouse, voters are advised to mail them at least a week in advance. For the first election, that means send by April 28. For the June 2 election, that means send by May 26.
These are to be completely mail elections. Here are the directions sent on how to check your voting status and fix it if you need it. (Thank JP for the putting this together!)
All 56 Montana counties will use mail ballots only for the June 2 primary election, and Gallatin County also will have a mail-ballot election on May 5 for schools and special districts (things like fire districts, water/sewer districts, etc).
Elections being conducted as mail ballot elections will avoid having polls open and possibly exposing voters and poll workers to the coronavirus.
Ballots will be mailed to all registered and ACTIVE voters on May 8. Return postage is paid. Local ballots (schools and special districts) will be sent in areas with a local election on April 17 - not sure about postage on this one so check the envelope.
Voters also can drop off their ballots in person, at the county election office. (311 W. Main , Bozeman in Gallatin County)
