Voter Registration in Montana
Every election year, Montana rates as one of the top states in the nation for voter turnout. Part of this is due to a strong statewide sense of civic duty―or so state officials like to believe―but perhaps some of this can be attributed to the ease with which Montana residents can register.
Voter registration forms can be found in libraries, county offices, phone books, and even in fast-food restaurant placemats. But, one of the easiest means of registering is while obtaining your driver's license at an exam station.
To qualify to vote, you must be 18 years old before the upcoming election day and have proof of Montana residency and United States citizenship. The entire process takes no longer than five minutes.
After registering, you'll receive in the mail a Voter Registration Card verifying that you are on the books. Once registered, you aren't required to register again unless you change your name or your address. If, however, you do not vote in two federal elections and fail to respond to confirmation notices, you will lose your voter eligibility.
If you have any questions, contact your local election office or call the Voter Hotline at (888) 884-8683.Other Topics in This SectionArticles
