44.3.110 ALTERNATIVE MEANS FOR CASTING BALLOT
(1) The election administrator shall provide an alternative method of voting for those electors who are unable, because of disability, to access their regular polling place. Those methods are limited to the following:
(a) the practice, commonly referred to as "curbside voting," as provided by 13-13-118, MCA;
(b) absentee balloting, as provided by 13-13-222 and 13-13-246, MCA; and
(c) prearranged assignment to an accessible polling place within the county. An elector, prevented from voting at the elector's own polling place on election day because it has been exempt from meeting the accessibility criteria set forth in these rules, shall:
(i) notify the election administrator, in writing at least two business days preceding the election, of the elector's desire to vote on election day at an accessible polling place;
(ii) be assigned to the nearest accessible polling place for the purpose of voting in that election;
(iii) sign the elector's name on a special addendum to the official precinct register, as required by 13-2-601, MCA; and
(iv) receive the same ballot to which the elector is otherwise entitled.
(2) For the purposes of this rule, the ballot shall be processed and counted in the same manner as an absentee ballot.
