The Billings League of Women Voters reminds voters of their voter ID options if they vote in person rather than by mail. The Montana Secretary of State website, www.sos.mt.gov, provides the following voter ID information.
Before you will be permitted to receive a ballot, you will need to present a current ID. If you do not have a photo ID, you can provide a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, voter confirmation notice, government check or other government document that show your name and current address.
If you do not have any of the items listed above, you can still vote by requesting and filling out a "Polling Place Elector ID" form.
Or you can vote a provisional ballot and provide one of the items listed above. Your provisional ballot will be counted if you provide one of the items on the list to the county election office by 5 p.m. the day after the election, or mail it to the county election office postmarked by the day after the election.
We encourage all eligible voters to exercise their right to elect those who govern them and vote on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 6.
