McCulloch: It’s Time to Put Vote-By-Mail on the Ballot
Statement from Secretary of State Linda McCulloch regarding the future of Vote-By-Mail, following Friday’s vote in the House of Representatives:
“Today’s vote proves that fiction too easily trumps fact in the Montana Legislature. It’s a sad day when elected legislators let politics and scare tactics stand in the way of doing what’s right. Politics overpowered the greater good, and Montanans lost. I commend Representative Pat Ingraham for her hard work in moving our bill forward. It’s time to put Vote-By-Mail on the ballot, and let Montana voters decide.”
HB 130 failed its third reading in the House of Representatives on Friday, January 28, 2011.
