Montana: State GOP Challenges Eligibility of Voters PDF  | Print |  Email
By Chelsi Moy, The Missoulian   
October 02, 2008
The state Republican Party this week challenged the eligibility of 6,000 registered Montana voters in seven counties historically considered Democratic strongholds.

More than half of the people challenged statewide live, or previously lived, in Missoula County.

Montanans who are registered to vote in Missoula, Butte-Silver Bow, Lewis and Clark, Deerlodge, Glacier or Hill counties and who filled out a change-of-address card with the U.S. Postal Service in the past 18 months will likely have to verify their correct place of residence before the Nov. 4 election.

Ignoring the situation, at the very worst, could disqualify a person's ballot. “The integrity of the voting process is something that has to be above reproach to have faith in the system,” state GOP executive director Jacob Eaton said. “We aren't trying to prevent anyone from voting. We want people to register properly.”

The search for Montanans who have failed to update their address on their voter registration was sparked by comments made by Gov. Brian Schweitzer to the American Association for Justice at a meeting in Philadelphia this summer, Eaton said.

“With Schweitzer's recent comments about rigging the '06 election, that brought everyone in the state to a new level of suspicion and awareness of the integrity of our elections,” he said.

Democrats, however, are crying foul, describing the challenge as a “desperate” attempt by Republicans to keep Montanans from casting ballots in November.
