(UnitedVoice.com) – The 2020 election will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the most contentious. The American people weren’t sure who their president was until January 6, two months after Election Day because of allegations of rampant fraud. As a result, Republicans around the country started working on bills to protect their states’ elections. Now, another Republican governor has signed bills to that effect into law.
On April 19, Montana Governor Greg Gianforte signed two election integrity bills into law. Senate Bill 169 clarifies what forms of identification will be accepted when a person goes to the polls to cast their ballots and requires some voters to show two IDs. The other bill, House Bill 176, moves the deadline for late voter registration to 12 p.m. the day before Election Day.
Montana has a long history of secure, transparent elections, setting a standard for the nation.

Montana isn’t the only state to take action to protect election integrity. Georgia also passed a sweeping law and other states are reportedly working on bills as well. The hope is that the American people never again have to worry whether or not their votes counted.
