How cool is this? For the first time in Montana, voters can access voter information and track their ballots online.
Montana ballots were mailed out yesterday. If you vote by mail, you can now check to make sure your ballot arrives and is counted. Montana Secretary of State Linda McCulloch’s new website, launched this week, also tells you your precinct location and polling place in case you’re someone who wants the fun of voting in person on Election Day. The service can be found at https://app.mt.gov/voterinfo. All you have to do is type in your name, birth date and house number to access the information.
I’m guessing this will come in really handy for those making GOTV (get out the vote) calls to help voters find out where they need to go and what they need to do – there is even a map to the polling place right there at your fingertips.
The site also tells you your state Senate district, House district, precinct and precinct location.
Speaking of Secretary McCulloch’s neat tech advancements, now would be a good time to sign up for her twitter updates, so that you’ll be the one with the latest scoop on election night, while everyone else is crowded around a laptop that won’t load or waiting for the TV news to come on, you’ll have the scoop. (Your friends will be jealous.) Go to http://twitter.com/sosmcculloch to follow Linda.
