Welcome to Montana Youth Votes

The Secretary of State Office in collaboration with the Office of Public instruction, would like to invite you to participate in our Montana Youth Votes Election. All students, kindergarten through grade 12, homeschool associations, private, and public schools can participate.

The purpose of the Youth Votes is to provide students an opportunity to participate in the United States election process. Students in grades K-6 will vote for the President of the United States and additional fun questions.

Students in grades 7-12 will receive the full ballot with Federal and Statewide candidates, as well as the constitutional amendments. Please review the sample ballot (link) with students so they will understand the Constitutional amendments and the candidates who are running for an office. You may use the Voter Pamphlet as a guide (link to the pamphlet)

This year, we are also very excited to introduce the Montana Youth Votes Ambassador Program. Students can volunteer to be an ambassador for their school. Being an ambassador is a commitment, so please see the How to be an Ambassador Tile to learn about the program. (link)

We look forward to another voting year, and ask that you provide your students with the opportunity to participate the most important of our American civic duties, voting
