Congress enacted the National Voter Act of 1993 (also known as the “NVRA” or the “Motor Voter Act”), to enhance voting opportunities for every American. The Act has made it easier for all Americans to register to vote and to maintain their registration.
Note: The window to register to vote at exam stations for the upcoming election has closed. You can still register to vote for the upcoming election at the nearest county treasure’s office.
Section 5 of the act requires states to provide individuals with the opportunity to register to vote at the same time that they apply for a driver’s license or seek to renew a driver’s license, and requires the State to forward the completed application to the appropriate state of local election official.
The Department of Justice Motor Vehicle Division redesigned its forms to be more voter friendly. You may use the MVD’s updated forms to register or update your voter information at any Driver License Exam Station. If you need to update your information, you may download Change of Address for Driver License or ID Card (form 34-0300). Your decision to register and where you submit the form will remain confidential.
You may also register to vote or check your voter status by visiting the Montana Secretary of State Voter information page.
