Following a weekend storm that put some parts of western and central Montana under record levels of snow, the state is extending deadlines for political candidates to file campaign finance reports.
Commissioner of Political Practices Jeff Mangan extended the deadlines for candidates and committees from Pondera and Teton counties, as well as those on the Blackfeet Nation, citing problems accessing the internet in those areas, as well as trouble with telephone and mail service.
For candidates and committees affected by the storm, the deadline to file campaign finance reports is Oct. 4 by 5 p.m.

City candidates and committees not affected by the storm, as well as city candidates who did not advance from the primary election, must file reports Monday.
City candidates in the general election have reports due Oct. 1, and city committees have reports due Sept. 30.
