State Senator Theresa Manzella (SD-44) shared a letter on Facebook signed by 86 Montana Legislators requesting a Special Select Committee on elections.

The request letter was transmitted to Senate President Mark Blasdel (SD-4) and House Speaker Wylie Galt (HD-30) on Wednesday and includes signatures from 24 State Senators and 62 State Representatives. The representatives are asking for the committee in order to “hear testimony concerning past Montana elections and [to] review the current election laws in Montana,” according to the letter.

“The Select Committee would conduct hearings about the process and security of Montana elections and propose future changes if needed; including legislation,” the letter stated. The legislators cite their authority under the Montana Constitution to hold the committee and review election law in addition to past election results. Under the Montana Constitution, legislators “shall insure the purity of elections and guard against abuses of the electoral process.” In full, Article IV, Section 3 states,

The legislature shall provide by law the requirements for residence, registration, absentee voting, and administration of elections. It may provide for a system of poll booth registration, and shall insure the purity of elections and guard against abuses of the electoral process.

Article IV, Section 3, Elections. Montana Constitution.

As their reason for calling the committee, the legislators cited constituent requests for answers to questions about election security in Montana elections. Last week, the Montana Election Integrity Project and the Ravalli County Republican Women hosted election integrity speaking events in Missoula and Hamilton, respectively.

At the events, hundreds of Montanan’s gathered to listen to two data analysts share anomalies that they uncovered pouring through data related to the Montana 2020 election including voter registration data, state and county race results, and US Census data.

One analyst, former Army Cpt. Seth Keshel, found that in Missoula County, Democrats, who had been on a historic downtrend of turnout after Obama’s first election, suddenly gained 11,814 votes and the county suddenly gained 15,911 new voters in 2020. The previous gain in voters was only 6,302 voters in the historic 2008 Obama election.

Missoula County voter turnout trends 2004-2020.

The committee on elections could probe the ballot discrepancy found in Missoula County’s 2020 General Election. A review of ballot signature envelopes in January found that 4,592 ballots were missing legally required chain of custody documentation, making it illegal for them to be counted.

According to the letter, the select committee would be a bipartisan committee whose makeup would match the current balance of party power in the legislature.

Senator Manzella shared that citizens interested in supporting the effort could contact Senate President Mark Blasdel or House Speaker Wylie Galt. The letter asks the Legislative leaders to respond by October 6th.

Great. Waste more taxpayer money on this witch hunt. Way to go Republicans.

About time. There have been past issues that indicated a need for investigating the election processes in numerous Montana counties. Gary Marbut’s (MSSA) run for office in the Missoula area in the recent past being one. He could explain that situation for you, which sounded like an apparent injustice to me.

I am a new (only ten years) Montana citizen in the Bitterroot who escaped from Oregon after they instituted mail-in only voting in that state. You can see how that has worked out for the unfortunate citizens of Oregon.

Do you trust the Missoulian media outlet?
Will you vaccinate your child?
Do you trust the Missoula City-County Health Department?
