Are Military Voters Disenfranchised?
An estimated 120,000 active
duty service members never received the absentee ballots they requested
in the 2010 elections. FRA was instrumental in advancing the Military
and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) Act to address this concern, but
problems still exist.
As the 2012 presidential
election draws near, the Association is conducting an online survey to
gauge the experiences of military absentee voters. All current and
former service members and their spouses are invited to participate in
this brief survey at www.fra.org/survey.
Survey results will be shared
with lawmakers to strengthen FRA’s call for further improvements
to the absentee voting process.
