HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Secretary of State Linda McCulloch on Tuesday announced a new way for people to begin the voter-registration process.

An online tool now allows qualified residents to enter and submit registration information via computer, tablet or smartphone. Those wanting to register can use the tool for upcoming elections including the Nov. 4 general election.

“The pre-registration tool was created to increase accuracy and efficiency of the voter registration process,” McCulloch said in a news release.

The entire process cannot yet be done online, however. People who fill out registration information online must still visit a county election office to sign a registration form before they are legally registered and can vote.

The online pre-registration tool can be found on the Secretary of State’s website at https://registertovote.mt.gov

The tool gives people the ability to pre-register to vote at their convenience and can shorten the time people need to spend at an election office, McCulloch said.

Montanans can check their voter-registration status at the Secretary of State’s website https://sos.mt.gov/ by clicking on “My Voter Page.” Registered voters can also view a precinct-specific sample ballot for the Nov. 4 election, find the location of their polling place, and track the status of their absentee ballot once one it has been issued.
