Armed Forces personnel risk life and limb for their country. Unfortunately they have to do it under a government controlled by Democrats, who repay their service by suppressing their votes:
Requests from military voters for absentee ballots have dropped significantly since 2008, according to newly released statistics, prompting claims that the Department of Defense is dragging its feet in enacting a law meant to boost military voting.
The drop in the battleground states of Virginia and Ohio is among the most pronounced. According to statistics released Monday by The Military Voter Protection Project, the number of absentee ballot requests by both military members and other overseas voters in the two states has dropped 70 percent since 2008.
In August military ballot requests were down in Virginia by an astounding 92%.
About two thirds of members of the military need to vote absentee — and yet:
Across Virginia, North Carolina and Ohio, the group reported that less than 2 percent of eligible voters had requested ballots as of August.
Funny how this is mainly happening in crucial swing states. Soldiers tend not to vote for liberal weenies who leave them hanging in the wind for political reasons rather than putting them in a position where they can win. That’s why Democrats have gone out of their way to suppress the military vote again and again and again.
But Obama, Holder, et al. make up for it by encouraging the welfare and illegal alien blocs to vote repeatedly.
