(Missoua Current) Three laws adopted by the Montana Republican Party during the 2021 Legislature placing restrictions on state voters were all overturned on Friday by the Thirteenth Judicial District Court.In doing so, the court found that the suite of laws, which banned same-day registration and added complications around voter ID, among other things, violated the Montana Constitution and unreasonably restricted one's constitutional right to vote.'Removing one-and-a-half days during which Montanans could register to vote and cast their vote is a severe burden on the right to vote,' the court wrote.
