Abstract The Montana Constitution permits citizens to enact laws by initiative, but sets forth requirements for collecting and submitting signatures. New Approach Montana alleges emergency circumstances relating to the coronavirus pandemic nullifies its ability to gather the signatures required to qualify two initiatives for the 2020 ballot. New Approach Montana filed this lawsuit seeking temporary authority to obtain electronic signatures in support of their petition to place a Constitutional Initiative and Statutory Initiative on the 2020 ballet, and suspension of enforcement of certain statutory requirements and deadlines governing the initiative process.
