  • Let's Vote 2020

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

  • Our Purpose

    The purpose of the Youth Vote 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 with students so they will understand the constitutional amendments, ballot intiatives, and the candidates who are running for an office. You may use the Montana Voter Information Pamphlet as a guide.

  • Your Vote Counts

    We look forward to another voting year, and ask that you provide your students with the opportunity to participate in the most important of our American civic duties, voting. You can’t complain if you don’t vote!

STUDENT RESOURCES

This year, we are very excited to introduce the Montana Youth Vote Ambassador Program. Students can volunteer to be an ambassador for their school. Being an ambassador is a commitment. For more information, click the red button above.
