Virginia Suppresses Military Vote

Seems to me that once the GOP reestablishes control at the national level, it may be necessary for there to be legislation passed in Congress and signed by the President that will ensure that our men and women in uniform are permitted to vote.

Virginia is the case in point right now, of attempts to disenfranchise the military. After the rejection of military absentee votes in Fairfax last year, we now have the state of Virginia claiming it has no obligation to send out absentee ballots for military personnel in a timely enough manner for them to actually be able to cast their ballots and return them.

The Virginia State Board of Elections argued in their most recent filing that they have no legal obligation to send out military absentee ballots in a timely manner. Restated, the State of Virginia has argued in a federal court filing that they can legally send out absentee ballots to active duty soldiers the day before an election. Restated again, theDemocratic Chairwoman of the Virginia State Board of Election (appointed by the Democratic National Committee Chair Tim Kaine, in his capacity as Virginia Governor) Jean Cunningham just claimed a legal basis for massively raising the barrier to voting for soldiers at war.

The claim? That there is no LEGAL obligation that the state act to ensure that military voters are able to exercise the rights which they are deployed to defend. And apparently these Democrat officials are not terribly interested in the MORAL obligation to guarantee the franchise of military voters – probably because they know that such voters will likely vote overwhelmingly for Republican candidates.

And interestingly enough, Democrat leaders in Congress are dragging their feet on bipartisan legislation introduced to ensure that military voters are, in fact allowed to vote in state and local elections as well as federal ones. Maybe that’s because they know that military voters could be the difference in the off-year gubernatorial elections in Virginia and New Jersey.

Comments on Virginia Suppresses Military Vote

I've just dropped a link to this blog on the Facebook pages of Bob McDonnell (candidate for Governor in VA), Chris Stolle (running for Delegate in my District in VA), the Facebook group American Conservatives (10k+ members) and with a Navy Journalist I happen to be good friends with. I'll post it to as many other sites and email it to as many current military members as I can. (I'm a vet and care deeply about this issue...)

I'm confused, isn't this going DIRECTLY against the Constitution which guarantees EVERY American citizen the RIGHT TO VOTE, unless of course you have been convicted of a felony crime? Good for you Ryan that you are taking the actions you state. This is EXTREMELY scary, considering that once a PRECEDENT has been established, then it opens the way for others States to follow with eliminating other voting entities. THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!

Thanks for expressing your ideas. The first thing is that scholars have a solution between federal government student loan as well as a private education loan where it truly is easier to choose student loan consolidation than through the federal education loan.
