Election 2012 Update #12: And Now the Long Night of Waiting for State Results Begins…


The Missoulian is reporting that poll watchers in Missoula “were threatening to challenge every ballot cast after 8 p.m.” What will it take to get Montana Republicans to stop trying to disenfranchise people?



The Helena Independent Record is reporting that voters are still voting in Helena at the City-County building. Don’t forget—the Montana Republican Party doesn’t want them to be able to.

I know that I am going to miss Montana’s best legislator James Knox during the next session. Consider the comedy he brings every single day:


NBC Montana is reporting that voters in West Yellowstone were turned away at the polls and told to drive to Bozeman to vote.
