Montana law ending Election Day voter registration on hold
September 23, 2022
HELENA, Mont. — The Montana Supreme Court, in a split ruling on Wednesday, upheld a temporary order blocking the enforcement of two election-related laws passed by the 2021 Montana Legislature while the laws are being challenged in court.
Five justices agreed with a lower-court judge who blocked a law that required people using a student identification to register and vote provide another document including their name and address.
Four justices agreed that District Court Judge Michael Moses was correct in temporarily blocking a law that ended Election Day voter registration while the court case plays out.
