Lawsuit Claims New Montana Law Eliminates Student Voting National / World

0


HELENA, Mont. (AP) – A lawsuit filed Tuesday challenges a new Montana law that bans voter registration and vote-withdrawal efforts in certain areas of college campuses.

The lawsuit brought by the Montana Democratic Party, Montanans for Tester and University of Montana student Macee Patritti is one of many challenges to the law passed by the Republican-dominated legislature earlier this year. The plaintiffs argue that the law suppresses voting for young people who generally favor Democratic candidates.
