Registered Montana voters will be asked to show ID at the polls to vote. Voters without ID can still vote a regular ballot if their Polling Place Elector ID form can be verified by the Election Office.
VoteRiders provides information and free, expert assistance to help you with voter ID. We can help with renewing your expired ID, obtaining the documents needed to secure your ID, and covering the cost of getting to and from ID-issuing offices.

FEDERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR FIRST TIME VOTERS
First-time voters, including those who have not voted in a previous Federal election or who have never voted in their county of residence in a Federal election, must present documentation proving their identity in order to complete their voter registration. This is required under the federal Help America Vote Act, enacted in 2002.
