New Montana state voting laws are in effect. Make sure you're ready before Election Day

Josh Burnham

The Montana Legislature this year made several changes to the way people can vote.

People can no longer register to vote on Election Day. Ballot collectors are now prohibited from picking up and delivering absentee ballots for pay. And voters who don’t have a government-issued ID or state concealed carry permit must provide two forms of ID to cast a ballot.

Montana Public Radio’s Freddy Monares spoke with Missoula County Election Administrator Bradley Seaman about what the changes might look like for voters ahead of municipal elections Tuesday.
