Montana Judge Temporarily Blocks Election Laws



A District Court judge in Montana has issued a preliminary injunction against four new laws that limit who, how and when Montanans can vote while a lawsuit challenging them proceeds. District Court Judge Michael Moses ruled laws that eliminated election day voter registration, changed voter ID requirements for college students and prevented the paid collection of voted ballots would not be in effect for the June primary here in Montana. He also temporarily blocked a law that would not allow 17-year-olds who pre-register to vote, to receive a ballot until they turn 18.
