Registered voters in Montana must confirm their identity when they vote in person.
You may cast a provisional ballot at your polling place by signing a statement swearing that to the best of your knowledge you are eligible to vote.
In order for your provisional ballot to count, the election administrator must find that the signature on this statement matches your signature on your voter registration form AND you must provide an acceptable form of ID in person, by facsimile or electronically.
