Missoula County's tracking mechanism for legislation proposed at the 63rd session of the Montana Legislature.
I testified on this bill during the Committee Hearing. This is a bill that we need so that we can enter voter registration cards before we mail ballots to reduce the duplicate ballots being mailed because of address changes received on close of registration. Absentee ballots are mailed on the same day.
Sent to Missoula Senators: Missoula County supports House Bill 251 - Revise date absentee ballots are available, before the Senate on second reading this afternoon. HB 251 gives the elections office a window to ensure voter information is verified based on new or change of registration cards before ballots are mailed to absentee voters. Please support HB 251.Respectfully,Dale Bickell on behalf of the Missoula County Commissioners
Sent the following to Missoula Senators: Missoula County strongly encourages the Senate to reconsider House Bill 251 - Revise date absentee ballots are available. HB 251 allows elections staff to take the short time they need to process new voter registration cards and update voter addresses in the state database before absentee ballots are mailed to voters. The provisions in this bill have no effect on late voter registration or on UOCAVA (overseas) voters. Please reconsider HB 251 and support the bill to ensure verification of voter information before absentee ballots are mailed.Respectfully,Dale Bickell on behalf of the Missoula County Commissioners and Clerk and Recorder, Vickie Zeier
