To vote in Montana, you must:
- Be registered as required by law.
- Be 18 years old or older on or before the next election.
- Be a citizen of the United States.
- Have lived in Montana and in the county in which you intend to vote for at least 30 days.

- You're a convicted felon serving a sentence in a penal institution.

How to Register to Vote
Registering to vote in Montana is quick and painless. You can:
- Visit your local election office on weekdays between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. and complete a registration form.
- Fill out a registration form and mail it to the local election office. It must be postmarked at least 30 days before the election. Registration forms are readily available from local election offices, post offices, libraries, and many organizations, businesses, and government agencies. There is a registration form available in your phone book, or you may use the registration form provided on this Web site.
- Fill out a registration form when you apply for or renew your driver's license.
- Late registration is available at any time right up through the close of polls on election day, except between 12:00 pm and 5:00 pm on the day before the election. However, registering early is beneficial to you and to your community. If you're not registered to vote, register as soon as possible! In order to register late you must appear in person at your local county election office.
You may vote only in the precinct in which your residence is located. If you're a student living at school, you can choose whether to register at home or school, but you can't register or vote in both places.
When you fill out your registration form, do not list a post office box as your residence. If you don't have a street address, describe the location of your residence. Use cross streets, for example, or list the section, township, and range.
Once you've registered, you'll get a voter confirmation notice from your local election office verifying your registration and telling you which precinct you vote in.
Registration is generally permanent unless you do not vote in a federal general election and do not respond to confirmation mailings. If you don't vote in a federal general election and do not respond to mailings, your name will be placed on an inactive voter list. If you fail to vote in two federal general elections after the mailings are sent, your name will be removed from the voter rolls.
You do need to register again if you change your address or your name.
