Secretary of State Linda McCulloch hosts “Rock Your Registration” event to celebrate National Voter Registration day
HELENA, MT – Secretary of State Linda McCulloch is celebrating National Voter Registration Day by hosting a “Rock Your Registration” event.
McCulloch has invited the public to attend a free “Rock Your Registration” event today on the Capitol front steps. The event will give residents the chance to register to vote, sign-up to receive their ballot absentee, check current voter registration information and allow people to find their polling location.
The event which will begin at noon today will feature live music provided by local band Stonehouse, pizza and drinks.
“This is a great way for us to kick-off the countdown to the 2014 General Election,” Secretary McCulloch said. “I wanted to host this event to celebrate our hard-earned right to vote, while giving Montanans a chance to register and to make sure their current voter information is up-to-date prior to November 4th.”
McCulloch reminds Montanans that they can register and vote right up through the close of polls on Election Day. Those who choose to register to vote after October 6th must late register in person, at the county election office, or at the location designated by the county election administrator.
“In Montana, one vote can swing an election,” Secretary McCulloch said. “Rock your registration and make plans to vote and have your voice be heard.”
Registered voters can check their voter registration record, find the location of their polling place, track the status of their absentee ballot, and view a precinct-specific sample ballot online with “My Voter Page” (MVP). Voters can access the MVP site at sos.mt.gov or download a smartphone compatible app.
