Deadlines, Deadlines: MT Voter Registration Details

October 4, 2010

BILLINGS, Mont. - Some voter registration deadlines to keep in mind with the Nov. 2. election coming up: Today is the last day for regular registration, when citizens can mail in their voter registration cards. And starting Tuesday, voters can register at their county election office.

While mid-term elections don't usually get much attention, Montana Conservation Voters Education Fund Executive Director Theresa Keaveny says there's a lot to decide.

"We will be electing 100 members of the House of Representatives and 25 state senators. There are two Public Service Commission races; two state Supreme Court races; and county commissioners races running all across the state."

In addition, there are four measures on the ballot.

Keaveny's mantra to encourage people to make their vote count is: "Who we elect matters."

"Whether we will have a renewable, clean energy economy; how our state grapples with budget constraints; how we protect our air, land, water and outdoor heritage. Those things will be decided by the people we elect."

Today is also the day absentee ballots are mailed. Nearly half of the state's registered voters cast their ballot by mail, Keaveny says.

Montana Conservation Voters Education Fund has a voter rights hotline to field questions about voting registration and deadlines, 406-581-8942.
