MT Polling Place Confusion?

June 3, 2008

Billings, MT – It's a good idea to do a double check on polling place locations in today's Montana primary election. David Ellenberger with the Montana Conservation Voters Education Fund says mistakes have surfaced that could send people to the wrong location.

"In one Montana county, what was reported in the newspaper for polling place locations differed from that of the county election office's website. So, we have some voters who are a little confused."

Ellenberger says that, with Montanans' votes so important for the presidential primary, and all the other races on the ballot, voters need to take a moment to be sure about where to go to cast their ballots and make sure their votes are counted.

"They should double check before they head down, to make sure that their polling place location is right. We want to make sure that people have a chance to exercise their right to vote."

Ellenberger suggests people verify polling locations with county election office websites.

Those who aren't registered to vote can register and cast ballots at the same time today, but that has to be done at county election offices. Montanans can call the Secretary of State's voter hot line at 888-884-VOTE if there are any last-minute questions.
