(1) Inactive electors are not provided with mail ballots unless they reactivate under the following procedures:
(a) At any time before noon on the day before election day, a ballot may be mailed, or upon request, provided in person at the location designated by the election administrator to an elector on the inactive list after the elector reactivates the elector's registration as provided in 13-2-222, MCA.
(b) An elector on the inactive list shall vote at the location designated by the election administrator on election day if the elector reactivates the elector's registration after noon on the day before election day.
(c) For an elector reactivating under (1)(a) or (1)(b), election officials must change the elector's status in the statewide voter registration database to "Active."
(2) Is it not necessary for an election official to require a reactivating elector to fill out a replacement ballot form under 13-19-305, MCA, since the elector, by following 13-2-222, MCA, is activating the elector's registration and is therefore automatically eligible for a ballot.
