HELENA (AP) — Montanans who want to cast a vote in next month’s primary election must be registered with their county elections office by noon on June 6, under an order by the Montana Supreme Court.
The justices, in a 4-1 ruling Tuesday, said changes to election laws passed by the 2021 Legislature will remain in effect for the June 7 primary.
District Court Judge Michael Moses of Billings had ruled last month that a law ending Election Day voter registration appeared to unconstitutionally burden the right to vote and he temporarily blocked it for this year’s primary election.
