Montana Democratic Party v. Jacobsen

Docket number
DA 22-0172, DA 22-0667

Held that laws eliminating election day registration, limiting the forms of acceptable identification for voting, and placing additional burdens on young voters violated the state constitution. Held that when a law minimally burdens the right to vote, but does not impermissibly interfere with it, a “middle-tier” of scrutiny is appropriate
