Military Vote in Question After DOJ Gives Illinois ‘Pass’ on MOVE Act, Advocacy Group Warns

Military voters from the land of Lincoln could be shut out of the midterm election after the Justice Department reached an agreement with Illinois that gave the state “a pass” for violating federal election law, an advocacy group warned Monday.

    The Chicago Election Board not only led the lobbying to change state law to allow military and other overseas ballots to be accepted up to two weeks after Election Day, but also has led the way in lobbying for future changes to allow military and civilians overseas to return their ballots by fax and secured that allowance in a Special Election in 2009 in Federal Court:

    We share the concerns of protecting and preserving the voting rights of the troops, and we take this awesome responsibility very seriously.”
