HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Secretary of State Linda McCulloch is asking state lawmakers to pass an automatic voter registration bill in the next legislative session

Five states have passed laws or regulations that automatically register eligible citizens who have driver’s licenses.

McCulloch says the measure would expand voter rolls and save the state money.

McCulloch proposed the measure Thursday during her first and last State of the Elections address.

The Democrat will leave office in January because of term limits.



She says Montana’s elections are accurate, secure, accessible and transparent.

She also called for increased cooperation with the state Legislature.

Republican-led lawmakers have voted down measures such as online voter registration and tried unsuccessfully to get rid of same-day voter registration.
