They Can Get You To The Fight, But Still Haven't Figured Out How To Count Your Vote

Posted By McQ • [May 13, 2009]

In a word, infuriating:

One out of every four ballots requested by military personnel and other Americans living overseas for the 2008 election may have gone uncounted, according to findings being released at a Senate hearing Wednesday.

Sen. Charles Schumer, chairman of the Senate Rules and Administration Committee said the study, while providing only a snapshot of voting patterns, "is enough to show that the balloting process for service members is clearly in need of an overhaul.

I prefer the word "broken". And this isn't just some recent event. It's been like that for decades. As we all know, "knowing" about a problem,doesn't mean anyone will fix it. Instead of the Civil Rights Commission sniffing around ballot boxes in FL and chasing bogus "disenfranchisement" claims there, why not get on an obvious case of disenfranchisement and make sure it gets fixed?
