Montana Kaimin - The Letter K
Last week the Kaimin dove back in time to see how Homecoming at the University of Montana started. For this year's festivities, the parade returned for the first time since 2019. The route was changed with the ongoing construction of Beartracks Bridge. In other news, the Montana Supreme Court has reinstated same-day voting and use of a college ID in a ruling last Wednesday. The ruling will be enforced for the midterm election, unless a Billings judge counters the supreme court in a different lawsuit.
