Men and women who risk their lives to defend American freedom must be honored by election laws that insist every military ballot will be counted. Today, members of the military are too often disenfranchised by a system that is uncaring about their most basic American freedom, which is the right to vote. Soldiers and their families find a system that is unresponsive and confusing. Our troops are risking all they have for our freedom. I will work hard to streamline absentee ballots for oversees military personnel and their families. Our system should let every voice be heard, especially the voices of the brave patriots who serve under arms on distant battlefields, defending the freedoms which bless each and every one of us.
