League of Women Voters




Montana allows in-person absentee voting that allows electors to vote as soon as absentee ballots are avaiable. Early in-person absentee ballots will be avaiable no later than 30 days before an election and will not be counted until Election Day. Voting takes place at your local elections office. For more information about times and locations please contact your local election officials.

Montana ID Needed for Voting

You must present ID when voting. When you enter your polling place, an election judge will greet you, ask your name, and confirm that you are registered to vote in that precinct. He or she will then ask you to show ID. This can be any current photo ID that shows your name (for example, a valid driver's license, school ID, state ID, or tribal ID) or a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, voter confirmation notice, government check or other government document that shows your name and current address.
