VOTING
MISSOULA, Mont. -

Some people who believed they had registered to vote through the Division of Motor Vehicles found out Tuesday they were not and had to cast a provisional ballot.
    
Katie Wyskiver of Lolo told the Missoulian (http://bit.ly/XpG0Hd ) she registered her new address with the DMV and received a card in the mail telling her to vote in Lolo, but she ended up having to drive to Missoula to vote at her old polling place.
    
She says election officials told her several people reported similar trouble. People standing in line at the polls in Billings told The Billings Gazette they arrived at the polls to learn they weren't registered to vote.
    
Officials with the Division of Motor Vehicles did not believe the problem was widespread, but they didn't know for sure.
