Why voteWhy Vote?

Voting is your constitutional right, your civic duty, and a Montana value. Montana has always had a proud tradition of high voter turnout, and the state has strived to make sure every eligible Montana voter can cast a ballot.

Voting puts you in charge.

Casting a ballot means that you are deciding how your government should be run and how laws are made. If you don’t vote, someone else will be making the decisions that directly affect your life every day.

One vote can make the difference.

It’s not unusual for elections in Montana to be decided by just a handful of votes, which means that your vote can actually decide the outcome of an election.
