Election Day is Approaching!
Like everything else, COVID-19 has shifted how we have to do things and so voting in this election looks different. The November 3, 2020 Presidential General Election will be conducted by mail ballot with an in-person voting option available October 2, 2020 through Election Day, November 3, 2020. Registration and ballot request deadlines have also been extended. You can find all the information you want or need on the Lewis and Clark County Elections website.
Ballots began to go out October 9th so many of you may have already received yours. If you want to vote by mail, ballots should be returned by mail at least one week before Election Day. If you haven't put your ballot in the mail by then, you should drop it off in-person. The deadline to vote by mail is October 26th!

New Leadership at HLN
As 2020 comes to a close, I am so pleased to share that HLN's new Co-Chairs for 2021 are Joe Mitchell and Kristen McLaughlin. Joe and Kristen have been engaged with HLN's Executive Committee for a few years and will be instrumental in pushing HLN forward. Joe will be serving as the Helena Area Chamber Board Liaison beginning in January, 2021. They've got lots of great ideas about how to reconnect and come back together in ways that are safe and meaningful. I'm excited to see what opportunities they will bring to the table!
