National Voter Registration Day

Linda McCulloch:

As Montana’s Secretary of State and chief election official, Linda McCulloch has championed the integrity and accessibility of Montana’s voting system for all qualified Montanans.  She fought to retain the ability for Montana citizens to register and vote up to and including Election Day.  Nearly 46,000 qualified Montanans have used this ‘late registration’ period – the 30 days leading up to Election Day – to vote in a statewide election.  She has also worked to improve our absentee voting provisions, an increasingly popular voting option in Montana.  She continues to challenge the unsubstantiated claims of election fraud in Montana promoted by those trying to restrict access to voting.  Thanks to Linda McCulloch for her work to ensure the integrity and accessibility of Montana’s election process.

About National Voter Registration Day:

In 2008, 6 million Americans didn't vote because they missed a registration deadline or didn’t know how to register. In 2012, National Voter Registration partners want to make sure no one is left out.

On September 25, 2012, volunteers, celebrities, and organizations from all over the country will "hit the streets" for National Voter Registration Day. This single day of coordinated field, technology and media efforts will create pervasive awareness of voter registration opportunities--allowing partners to reach tens of thousands of voters or more who we could not reach otherwise.  Visit their web site at
