ID requirements

Bring a photo ID if you have one, but if you don’t, you can sign a simple Polling Place Elector ID form and still vote.
Approved forms of ID:
Montana Driver’s License

Montana ID Card

Military ID Card

Tribal Photo ID Card

Concealed Carry Permit

United States Passport or any photo ID and either a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck or government check, or government document with your name and current address

If you don’t have any of the IDs above or forget to bring one with you on Election Day, you can still vote by asking for a Polling Place Elector ID form at your polling place. If you do not have some form of approved ID, you can still vote by requesting and filling out a “Polling Place Elector ID” form. But note that if you registered to vote by mail and did not provide either a state-issued ID number or the last four digits of your Social Security Number, you may still be required to show proof of identification. This includes photo ID, a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document.
