Stephen A. (Steve) Lavin (born April 23, 1967) is a Republican member of the Montana Legislature. He was elected to House District 8[1] which represents the Kalispell, Montana area.

In February 2013, Lavin gained nationwide media attention for introducing a bill that would allow an authorized representative to vote in municipal elections on behalf of a corporation owning property in that municipality. Lavin later said that he introduced the bill at the request of a constituent. He believed the bill merely allowed non-resident property owners to vote in elections and did not realize that the bill would also allow representatives to vote on behalf of corporations. The bill died in committee. [2]
