News from the   Office of Governor Bullock

MONTANA – The United States District Court for the District of Montana affirms the decisions by local counties to expand vote by mail and early voting in Montana for the November election.

The court’s decision is the first in the country that follows a full trial on efforts to undermine mail ballots. The court rejected all of the claims against Montana’s early voting and mail ballot option.

In August, Governor Bullock issued a directive to ensure all eligible Montanans can safely vote in the 2020 November election by allowing counties, at their discretion, to expand vote by mail and early voting. 

Forty-six of Montana’s fifty-six counties opted to do so, and all counties are required to offer in person voting and take precautions to protect from COVID-19. This was the same directive issued for the June primary election.
