WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR VOTING IN FLATHEAD COUNTY?
Voting in Montana is determined based on a residential address of a voter. Since legislative district boundaries were changed as a result of the redistricting process, a voter’s residential address may now be located in a different House and/or Senate District, and, therefore, a voter’s precinct assignment may also change. If a voter’s House and Senate District changes, this affects who their legislative representatives are and what district position/candidates they will vote on.
The county election office will be mailing new voter confirmation cards to all active registered voters in Flathead County to ensure the adequate notice of the voter's new legislative district boundaries. To review the changes now, please visit the GIS Election Lookup Map that reflects these changes. Use the residential address to search and view the new legislative boundaries.
Please contact the election office for more information.
