Military voting

DENVER — After years of accusing states of “voter suppression,” the Center for American Progress wants to make it tougher for overseas military to vote in the name of election security.

The left-wing public-policy group issued Monday a report, “Election Security in All 50 States,” that called for stricter standards to prevent cyber-meddling in elections by foreign governments, including banning military stationed abroad from submitting ballots via email or fax.

One state that allows such vote-casting is Colorado. The center called on the state to “prohibit voters stationed or living overseas from returning voted ballots electronically.”

“Regardless of the state’s secure ballot return system for electronically voted ballots, we recommend that all voted ballots be returned by mail or delivered in person,” said the 245-page report.

    Another disgraceful act by the organization. Liberals across this country are doing everything, legal or not, to grant the vote to illegals, who have no right to determine the outcome of our elections, while putting hurdles in place for our brave men and women who are overseas defending OUR country from harm. Shame on these phonies for their feeble attempt to silence their voice, and the phony excuse they are using to do so.

    Amazing how these shameless politicians would rather give the voting franchise to those who entered the country illegally than those who fight and sometime die to defend their right to vote. In the 2000 election, the Gore campaign had the votes of thousands of Military members voting absentee in CA thrown out because of the date on the postmarks. (Military overseas post offices, especially those on board ships, did not, at the time, postmark outgoing mail until it hit the States, a delay sometimes of weeks. This has since been changed, but it still happened.) They should be ashamed of their actions, but remember their collective opinion of the Military is that they are not to be respected, so why let them vote?

    Just one more solid reason NOT to vote for a Demo-Commie. They treat our Troops like they were 2nd class citizens. Screw the commie Bast*rds.

  • WALTER FLATT says:

    NO ILLEGAL PERSON SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO VOTE AND ANY STATE THAT ALLOWS SUCH SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO COUNT THEIR VOTES IN A NATIONAL ELECTION. WE USED TO HAVE A POLL TAX FEE AND ONLY PEOPLE IN TN. THAT WAS A CITIZEN AND PAID THE TAX COULD VOTE. WE HAVE VOTER ID IN KY. AND HAVE TO SHOW PROFF WHEN WE VOTE. THIS SHOULD BE THE LAW NATIONWIDE.

    The democrat communist party has been interfering with the military vote for a long time. They do it because the percentage of the military that bothers to vote is highly right leaning. The DNC has tried many different techniques from failure to deliver ballots to the military in time enough to have them returned on time. They have interfered with the planes that carry the ballots both ways and the list does on and on. The military voting is considered “absentee” and as such the ballots should be requested by the family for local delivery. Then the family member should be allowed to “stand in” for the military member as is often done is the case of legal marriages. This way the family member could mark the ballot as the military member designates, make a copy as proof of doing what the voter wants and send the ballot in. Done this way the time constraints are totally eliminated. For sure the democommies will object.

    Democrats are totally despicable. They fight like hell to make sure everyone gets to vote, whether they are citizens or not. They have pushed for people who are known to be citizens of Mexico and not citizens of the US to vote (several states, including California, Maryland, Virginia so far). Now they show their true colors-they don’t want everyone to vote, they want everyone who might vote Democrat to vote, anyone who might vote for Republicans shouldn’t even be allowed to register. What a crock! You end up with Mexican illegals voting and our military men and women who give us all the right to vote can just pound sand-no voting allowed for that bunch. The mere suggestion that this should be considered a valid voting rule should get the assholes who suggest it hung.

      You said it all Big Ed! And yes…..Democrats and all that they entail are DESPICABLE!

      They are the present day Vichy French equivalent.
      Progressive/socialists elites in this country are in favor of a Marxist based form of government in the US (with them in charge of course).
      For the past three decades they have harbored a seething anger against Ronald Reagan for his efforts that bankrupted the Marxist regime in Russia that caused the resulting breakup of the USSR
