I am a combat veteran and when I deployed to Iraq I was purged from the system when I filled out an absentee ballot. I had no idea about this and I was not able to vote in this election (2012). I want to prevent this from happening to our veterans in the future.

      No military service member should ever have their right to vote infringed upon.

      Because my nephew fought overseas for this country and came back to find his voter reg was purged because he had "moved out of the country". Absolutely ridiculous!!

      To disenfranchise the very people who are fighting to protect us is reprehensible. This must be changed.

      My husband is a retired marine and I know what it is to serve for our country. It is important for every US citizen to be able to vote.
