Montana Governor Signs Two Election Bills Into Law, And Dems Freak Out

Videos by OutKick

Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte signed a bill that put an end to same-day voter registration and that requires some residents to provide two forms of identification before voting. And now Democrats are suing.

“This afternoon, Montana’s Republican Governor signed two voter suppression bills into law. Tonight, on behalf of the @MTDems we sued,” election attorney Marc Elias said in a tweet.

Dems began to raise a fuss after Gianforte signed House Bill 176 to end same-day voter registration, and Senate Bill 169, revising the accepted IDs that can be used for voting.

Voter access and ease has become a hot topic that has created more division among the parties, with Republican sponsors of the Montana bills “arguing that the bills aren’t about making it harder for voters, but making the state’s election system even more secure and efficient,” CNN wrote.

  1. So sick of those Dem assholes. I am from a country that has strict election rules and very, if not almost, no fraud. When I came to the US and became a citizen and voted in CA, I thought I was dealing with a 3rd world banana republic. Dems are just an evil bunch. They’re worse than the French socialists I had to deal with. They hate their country and are ready for anything that will destroy it.
