Missoula County voting

A line of voters waits outside the Missoula County elections office in November 2012.

Montana Secretary of State Linda McCulloch, a Democrat, and Republican State Sen. Champ Edmunds will debate Election Day voter registration at the October City Club Missoula forum.

The program will take place at 1 p.m. Monday at the DoubleTree Hotel, 100 Madison St.

The focus of the discussion is Legislative Referendum 126, which if passed would repeal Montana’s Election Day voter registration law and replace it with one that ends voter registration on the Friday before Election Day. Edmunds will argue to end same-day registration (a yes vote on the referendum), and McCulloch will support the current practice allowing citizens to register when they arrive at the polls to vote (a no vote on the referendum).

City Club Missoula forums are open to the public. Reservations are required by noon Friday. Credit card reservations can be made at To pay at the door by check, call 541-2489. Please indicate if you want lunch, $15 per person, or the no-lunch option, $5. Payment is required for late cancellations and unclaimed reservations.
