What are the impediments to voting and how is Montana dealing with them?

Rina Fontana Moore will be our speaker at our July 20th gathering. It will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the Darkhorse Hall at the Celtic Cowboy. In her words:
“Rina Fontana Moore was elected to the seat of Cascade County Clerk & Recorder/Auditor/Surveyor/Elections Administrator in November of 2006 and took office on January 2, 2007. She is a professionally licensed Land Surveyor, cartographer and personal property auditor, as well as a professionally licensed Real Estate Appraiser.
Rina is currently in the 3rd year of her 4th term in office.  The Clerk & Recorders’ Office is responsible for all of the county’s accounting and the processing of the yearly financial reports, auditing all expenses within the county, recording of all deeds, among many other duties. Last but not least, and the favorite part of her position, as well as the most challenging, is the Elections Office. Rina will be speaking on access to voting and the voting process.”
The following are the topics that will be presented and open for discussion at the gathering on July 20th:

HB176 – Close of Late Registration on Friday Before Election Day.
