The justices have overturned a district court injunction blocking new voting laws.

“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.”  Psalms 95:6 (KJV) 

Under an order issued Tuesday by the Montana Supreme Court, Election Day voter registration will once again be prohibited in the state. The order overturned a district court injunction from March that blocked portions of four new election administration laws affecting voter identification requirements, ballot collection and voter registration.

Montana Secretary of State Christi Jacobsen had requested a stay from the state’s high court earlier this spring as part of an ongoing lawsuit involving the four laws passed by Republican legislators in 2021. The plaintiffs in that case include the Montana Democratic Party, Western Native Voice, Montana Youth Action and a coalition of other Indigenous and voting rights groups, all of which have challenged the laws as unconstitutionally burdensome to voters. Jacobsen, a Republican, is the defendant, and was an outspoken supporter of the laws during the 2021 session.
