HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Secretary of State Linda McCulloch says counties were putting more than 230,000 absentee ballots for the June primary into the mail on Friday.

McCulloch reminds absentee voters that they’ll receive ballots from both parties, they can only vote one party’s ballot for the primary. Voters also are required to sign the return envelope.

McCulloch also notes that presidential candidates who have suspended their campaigns, but have not withdrawn from Montana’s ballot, will remain on the ballot. Votes cast for those candidates will be counted.

The 232,731 absentee ballots being mailed will reach just over a third of the state’s 645,000 registered voters.

County elections offices must receive absentee ballots before the close of polls on Election Day, which is June 7.
