State of Montana

Montana Voter Suppression Bills (Western Native Voice)

Western Native Voice v. Jacobsen

Lawsuit brought on behalf of Western Native Voice, Montana Native Vote and multiple tribes challenging the passage of two voter suppression laws that eliminate Election Day registration (House Bill 176) and ban certain types of ballot assistance (House Bill 530). The lawsuit claims that the laws violate the Montana Constitution and asks the court to stop the Montana secretary of state from enforcing them. The case was consolidated with Montana Democratic Party v. Jacobsen; all future filings and updates can be found on that case page.
