Montana Rural Voters

Montana Rural Voters

The Montana Rural Voters supports the laws and lawmakers that protect Montanaís family farmers and ranchers, our good clean water, and our stateís unique quality of life.

Family-based farms and ranches sustain our rural communities. They sustain our land, water, and wildlife. They represent much of what is best about Montana.

Itís in the interest of all Montanans that our family farms and ranches survive and thrive. Montana is a great place to live, recreate, work, and raise a family. Montana must thrive if we want to maintain our unique quality of life. It is also in the interest of all Montanans to have access quality and the quantity of Montanaís waters for drinking, farming, and recreating.

But that wonít happen by itself. Family farmers and ranchers face many obstacles today. Indeed, many Montana farms and ranches have not been able to survive, and our state loses more and more with each passing year.

Itís in the interest of all us to have access to the quality and quantity of Montanaís waters for drinking, farming, and recreating.

Montana is worth fighting for. Thatís why Montana Rural Voters exists. We are going to reverse the prevailing trend by amplifying the voice of rural Montana families at the local, state, and national levels. We engage Montanans in the civic dialogues that directly affect our future and our livelihoods. To achieve a healthy rural economy, Rural Voters is:

  • Holding public officials and politicians accountable to their constituents by educating voters about the actions of legislators and members of Congress, the actions and statements of executive branch officials, and the stances and statements of politicians and candidates in rural Montana
  • Developing community leaders in rural Montana counties, briefing candidates, and making them take a stand on issues that are important to Montanans
  • Supporting candidates for elected office in rural Montana that support our values and making sure rural Montanans know about the ones who donít
  • Taking a stand and educating voters on ballot initiatives that directly affect rural Montana
  • Supporting good public policies like encouraging renewable energy like wind power and biofuels, protecting groundwater and air from pollution, and promoting family agriculture
  • Engaging rural Montana citizens in the civic process by registering under-represented communities to vote and getting them out to vote
  • Supporting rural Montanansí rights at the ballot box.
