Stories from Around the State

In June 2022, the US Supreme Court ruled in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, overturning Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey and ending the federal constitutional right to abortion. As the Supreme Court no longer recognizes the right to abortion as protected by the US Constitution, this ruling makes state constitutional amendments even more significant, leaving the right to abortion up to federal or state laws. 

A federal court has upheld Montana Governor Steve Bullock’s directive allowing the state’s counties to proceed with conducting vote-by-mail elections this November.

LWV of Montana filed a motion to intervene in Donald J. Trump for President v. Bullock, which challenges Governor Bullock’s August 6 Directive allowing counties to conduct the general election primarily by mail at their discretion.
