Voter Registration up for Montana’s June 3 Primary

By Beacon Staff

HELENA – The secretary of state’s office reports voter registration in Montana is up amid excitement over the race between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama.

More than 626,000 voters are currently registered to vote in Montana’s June 3 primary. That surpasses the total of about 595,000 registered in 2004.

And this year, voters will be able to continue registering right up until June 3. The secretary of state says local election officials are expecting a big turnout.

Clinton and Obama have both been active in the state, and part of the work has focused on registering voters and organizing volunteers with local offices.

Montana’s primary will be the last in the nation, held on the same day as South Dakota.
