The Montana Boundary Amendment did not appear on the November 2, 2010 ballot in the state of Montana as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure was being spearheaded by Cathy Hacket of Stevensville, Montana and proposed to reinstate boundaries from Montana's original constitution, which was written in 1889. The current constitution, written in 1972, did not include said boundaries.

According to reports, the boundaries are given in latitudes and longitudes, and gives a clear, clarifying picture of where the state lines lie with that information. According to Hackett:"I really think that places our state sovereignty in jeopardy if we don't have official boundaries in our constitution."[1][2]

Path to the ballot

Petition circulators had until the June 18, 2010 petition drive deadline to turn in the required 48,673 signatures, since the proposed measure was a citizen-initiated constitutional amendment. However, the measure was withdrawn by Hacket.[3][2]
