Elections Matter

Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte signed a series of bills over the past week banning the use of outside private money and ranked choice voting in elections.

On Monday, the Republican governor signed SB 117, which stipulates that “[a]ll costs and expenses relating to conducting elections must be paid for with public funds.” The passage of the bill makes Montana the 25th state to ban or restrict the use of private money in the conduction of elections.
