EVERSOLE: Military votes don’t count

Obama Justice Department excuses failure to deliver ballots to troops
Military voters must feel like Bill Murray’s character in GroundhogDay. Election after election, certain state and local election officials fail to meet the deadline for sending absentee ballots. The outcome is often the same - thousands of ballots are received too close to the election to be returned or, if they are returned, the ballots arrive after the deadline to be counted. In either case, the military voter is disenfranchised.
Congress attempted to fix this time loop in 2009. The MOVE Act was a new law that created a simple requirement: State and local election officials had to send absentee ballots to military voters at least 45 days before an election. Yet, this simple requirement has been hard to follow.
In 2010, for example, local election officials in at least 14 states failed to comply with the new law. The worst offenders, counties and boroughs in New York and Illinois, missed the deadline by more than two weeks. More than 40,000 military and overseas ballots were impacted by this failure with many of the ballots being sent only 25 days before the election.
Two years later, military voters are waking to the same rotten story in the presidential primaries.

Should our military volunteers be treated better than this? The democRAT party has taken extreme measures to stifle the military vote election after election!
Yes, but the democRAT party does everyting they can to negate the military vote since they know that the vast majority of military have no use for democrats and their policies.
No, they will not vote for democRAT politicians so should be treated worse than illegal aliens. Ask any democRAT politician.
This is not a scientific survey,
to learn more. Results may not total 100% due to rounding and voting descrepencies.

Free - What???? Your statment makes no sense in response to the posting.
The reason the Dems don't want the military to vote is that they overwhelmingly dislike Obama as president. They are forbidden from saying this in public. However, being military brat/spouse for more than 50 years, I know this is true.
