Satellite election offices established on Montana reservations


HELENA - Montana Secretary of State Linda McCulloch -- who also serves as the state's and chief elections officer -- announced on Monday the establishment of five satellite election offices on American Indian Reservations in Montana for the upcoming 2016 elections.

This follows a directive issued by McCulloch in October, ordering counties to provide satellite offices if necessary to ensure compliance with the federal Voting Rights Act.

Satellite offices offer services that are otherwise only available to voters at the county headquarters, such as late registration and in-person absentee voting, which are available in the 29 days preceding the election.
