Montana: Voting at the Polls on Election Day

Poll Hours: 7:00 AM-8:00 PM

    Before an elector is permitted to receive a ballot or vote, the elector shall present to an election judge a current photo identification showing the elector's name. If the elector does not present photo identification the elector shall present one of several specified documents showing the elector's name and current address.

    Acceptable Forms of ID

    • Driver's license
    • School district or postsecondary education photo identification
    • Tribal photo identification
    • Current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, notice of confirmation of voter registration, government check, or other government document that shows the elector's name and current address

    If the identification presented is insufficient to verify the elector's identity and eligibility to vote or if the elector's name does not appear in the precinct register, the elector may sign the precinct register and cast a provisional ballot.

    Montana uses signature verification to verify the eligibility of provisional ballots. If the voter's signature on the provisional ballot affirmation matches the signature on the voter's registration record, the ballot is counted.

    Voting by Absentee Ballot In Montana

    Any registered voter may vote by absentee ballot:

    • Applications must be received by the county election office by noon the day before the election. If you drop off the application you will be able to pick up the absentee ballot at the same time, once ballots are available.
    • Be sure to sign the affirmation on the signature envelope before sending back or dropping off. Note: The person to whom the ballot was issued must be the person signing the return envelope.

    Military and Overseas Voters

    • The Secretary of State's Electronic Absentee System (EAS) for Montana's Absent Military and Overseas Citizen Voters is now available. Register and vote using this system until 8:00 p.m. MDT June 5, 2012.

    College Student Voting In Montana

    Students can establish residency in Montana if they have a present intention to remain at their Montana school address for the time being, and they intend to make it their principal home.The website of the Secretary of State states plainly that students who live at school can choose whether to register at their prior address or at school, so long as they only vote at one address.

    Students who lived in Montana prior to attending school and who wish to establish or keep their Montana voting residency,should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. Like most states, Montana allows students to keep their voting residency even if they move out of the county or state to attend school.

    Mover's Guide: Montana

    Under federal law, if you move within 30 days of a presidential election, you are allowed to vote for President and Vice President in your former state of residence, either in person or by absentee ballot.

    If you moved to Montana from another state, you must register to vote in Montana to be able to vote. You can register in person at the election administrator’s office anytime before the election; however, any voter who registers after noon on the day before or on Election Day must appear at the county election office in order to vote. Unless you register at the election administrator’s office, the last day to register in time to vote in the next election is thirty days before the election

    If you moved to a new address that is covered by the same polling place as your old address, you can vote a regular ballot at that polling place after confirming your change of address at the polling place. This is true regardless of how close to the election you moved.

    If you moved to a new address within the same county but with a different polling place, you can vote at the polling place associated with your old address or a centralized location set up by the election administrator for the first election after your move. You need to give your new address and fill out a transfer or new registration form.

    If you moved to a new address in a different county more than 30 days before an election you should complete a new registration form for your new address in the county.
