ABOUT THIS STATE
Hey Montana, did you know that, in your state, if you start performing onstage, you legally can’t quit halfway through? You have to finish. It’s a law! A law that *you* made! Let's apply it to voting, shall we? If you pledge to vote, there’s no backing out. You gotta do it. The good news for you? Voting’s a lot easier than the performing arts. Montana has two main elections in 2022: Its primary election will take place on June 7, and the general will be held on November 8. Here’s everything you need to know about voting in Big Sky Country.

what's new in montana voting since 2020
In 2021, Montana passed 10 new laws related to voting. Don't worry, we'll tell you everything you need to know to make sure your ballot gets counted. There are two main changes that affect voters. First, there is no longer same-day registration in Montana. So make sure you're registered to vote by noon on the day before the election. Second, voter ID requirements have changed. When you're registering to vote or casting your ballot, there are a few options to fulfill the requirements. When you register, you can use either your Driver's License/State ID number or the last four digits of your Social Security Number OR a certain forms of photo IDs, including a military ID, tribal photo ID, US passport, or MT concealed carry permit. If you don't have any of those things, you can use another form of photo ID PLUS a bill, paycheck, or government issued document with your name and current address. When you show up to the voting booth itself, you can use either your government-issued ID (Montana driver's license, tribal ID, U.S passport, concealed carry permit, military ID) or another form of photo ID PLUS a bill, paycheck, or government document with your name and address. Student IDs are no longer a valid form of voter identification. Check with our friends at Vote Riders for more details on voter identification or assistance.learn more

Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can increase our majority to 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. But that will only work if we also protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states like Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and New Hampshire.
