BREAKING NEWS:
The Montana Supreme Court has issued a stay on District Judge Donald Harris’ 11th-hour injunction that extended the deadline for county election offices to accept absentee ballots.

Under current Montana law, absentee ballots have to be received by 8 p.m. on election day, (June 2 for the 2020 Montana primary). Judge Harris’ ruling would have allowed the absentee ballots to be counted as long as they were postmarked on or before election day and received by June 8.

Montana Attorney General Tim Fox, whose office requested the stay, released a statement following the justices’ decision:

“I am pleased that the Montana Supreme Court maintained our long-standing ballot deadline of 8 p.m. on Election Day, especially since some counties are using prepaid ballot return envelopes that are not postmarked. Ten days before an election is not an appropriate time to upend an important and widely known voting deadline.”

The decision was 5-2. Justices McGrath and Sandefur would have allowed Judge Harris' order to remain in effect.

All we have to know and abide by is right here... " Montana law, absentee ballots have to be received by 8 p.m. on election day, (June 2 for the 2020 Montana primary"

No excuse, no valid justification for extending the deadline.

Appreciate Rosebud County putting the postage on. Ballots out early and any citizen has no excuse for missing any deadline!

Thank You AG Fox. Again I’m starting to wonder if you are the only one in Helena working on positive issues for Montana.

Thank you AG Fox!

Now for Judge Fehr....
