HELENA, Mont. — Montana’s midterm General Election is three weeks away, and state and local election officials are continuing to provide education and outreach to Montana voters.
The Voter Information Pamphlet sent to the mailboxes of voters from mid-September through mid-October was in production prior to the judicial order enjoining Montana’s identification and registration laws. The Secretary of State wants Montana voters to be Vote Ready this November.

Registration will be available on Election Day through 8 p.m.
Identification at polling place:

If the elector does not present photo identification, including but not limited to a valid driver’s license, a school district or postsecondary education photo identification, or a tribal photo identification, the elector shall present a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, notice of confirmation of voter registration issued pursuant to 13-2-207, government check, or other government document that shows the elector’s name and current address.
