New Rules: Food, Guns Banned From Polling Places

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS - After receiving complaints from Republicans two years ago, Cascade County commissioners passed new polling place regulations on Tuesday.

Clerk and recorder Rina Fontana Moore proposed the regulations that will cover the county's seven polling places.

New Rules
  • No person or groups will be allowed to bring in food or drinks and distribute them in any of the polling locations 'with' the exception of elections staff delivering lunch for election judges.
  • Poll watchers will have to check in with the elections administrator and wear a brightly colored vest so they are distinguishable in the crowd.
  • Elected officials or those running will not be allowed to hold a seat within a polling place as a poll watcher or observer 'except' the elections administrator.

The new policy also says that petition signature gatherers will 'not' be allowed inside any polling locations. And no weapons will be allowed in any polling location.

 The rules will be in effect for the June 3 primary.
