Golden Valley Awarded Federal Grant to Improve Polling Place Accessibility
HELENA – Secretary of State Linda McCulloch recently awarded the following federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA) grant to Golden Valley County:
- Golden Valley County = $5,000 polling place accessibility grant
“Every voter should have access to the polls, including those with limited mobility or other special needs. I applaud Golden Valley and election workers throughout the state for working to ensure that polling places in every county are easily accessible,” said Secretary McCulloch.
Secretary McCulloch has approved nearly $100,000 in similar grants to 21 counties in Montana. While funding is available, all 56 of the counties in Montana are eligible to receive the federal dollars, which stem from Montana’s portion of the federal Help America Vote Act.
