How to Register to Vote

In Montana, you can register to vote up until - and even on - Election Day.

Start the Voter Registration Process Online

Montana doesn't allow online voter registration. But you can start the process online. Fill in your information and we'll mail you a voter registration form along with a postage paid return envelope. All you need to do is sign the registration form and drop it in the mail.

Registration Deadlines

If you are sending in your voter registration application by mail, your registration must be received by October 26th, 2020. After that date, you must register to vote in-person at your county election office or a satellite election location. 


You are eligible to vote if you are:
  • a U.S. citizen

  • at least 18 years old

  • living in Montana for 30 days before the election

  • not currently incarcerated for a felony

Not sure if you're registered at your current address?

The Montana Secretary of State allows you to check your registration status online.
