League of Women Voters Support Mail Ballots
Recently, the Republican National Committee and Donald J. Trump for President filed suit against Montana Governor Steve Bullock's directive to allow counties to conduct the November General Election by mail-in ballot. Montana conducted mail-in balloting in June's primary election, but the suit seeks to stop the same process in November. Last week, the League of Women Voters of Montana filed a motion to intervene in the suit on the side of Governor Bullock.
Nancy Leifer, Montana League of Women Voters president, said in a news release, "We clearly saw how voters were protected from COVID-19 when Montana conducted our primary election by mail in June. The governor's vote by mail Directive was the common-sense choice to protect voters' health and their access to the ballot... The League seeks to intervene to protect the rights of voters this November."
The suit against Montana asks for an injunction prohibiting the mail-in vote directive. The suit is scheduled to be heard in court September 22nd.
