Throughout the past five years, Missoula County has been making significant renovations to the courthouse to enhance customer service, provide improved and expanded work spaces for staff and to preserve the valuable history of the building. The current phase included a special opportunity for local painter, Amanda Bielby to preserve art within the historic courtroom 3, bringing the original design back to life. After months of meticulous work, Amanda is nearing completion. This time-lapse video shows just part of her work!

Missoula County Commissioners adopted a resolution to run the special election to fill Montana's U.S. Representative seat on May 25 by mail ballot contingent on the passage of Senate Bill 305. Missoula County would save $100,000 running this election by mail versus using polling places and absentee ballots (72% of voters in Missoula County voted absentee in November). Eight regular polling places have already confirmed they're unable to provide space for the May election. Missoula Votes works hard to communicate with all voters. More information about Senate Bill 305 and the Election Advisory Committee's support for running this special election by mail is posted on their Facebook page.
