Montana Secretary of State Christi Jacobsen is appealing all four election-related laws that were struck down by a state district judge this year.

In a notice of appeal filed Tuesday with the Montana Supreme Court, Jacobsen indicated she would challenge Yellowstone County District Judge Michael Moses’ Sept. 30 order finding unconstitutional three laws passed by the GOP-dominated Legislature in 2021: imposing more restrictive voter ID requirements; moving the voter registration deadline back from Election Day to noon the day before; and outlawing paid ballot collection.

The notice also appeals the judge’s previous orders in the case, including one that struck down a law barring anyone who turns 18 before Election Day from getting a ballot before their birthday.
