Obama’s DoD at Work: Military Absentee Ballot Requests Drop by Over 90% in Some States

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.

Virginia had nearly 42,000 total requests in 2008, compared with a little more than 12,000 this year, according to the MVP Project. Ohio had more than 32,000 in 2008, compared with 9,700 this year. The number of military voters specifically — as opposed to military and overseas voters — was not broken down in the latest set of statistics, but military-only numbers released by the MVP Project in August documented a similar drop-off in applications.

At the time, military ballot requests in Virginia were down 92 percent. Several other states showed a precipitous drop since 2008, including Alabama, North Carolina and Florida.

    Are we surprised that obama’s government is ignoring this law? Perhaps too many of those service people would be expected to vote against obama???

    …just more proof that this pseudo-election is already a done deal, as I have been inferring. The “Re-PUNK-licans” should and MUST not let this abhorable occurrence happen, but like always, they will let it happen! Imagine that: America’s best and bravest being used as canon fodder and not being allowed to vote! I have told all of youy that we no longer are governed by the rule of law but rather ruled by a demonic, Muslim-Marxist, wanna-be new Hitler! Until this realization is confronted by those in the media that have a public forum to acknowledge this and have the courage to dispense this reality to the dumb-downed, apathetic, recreational/leisure/hedonistic diversion seeking electorate, you will suffer the consequences of this tryrannical, Godless, communist regime that has it in for you! You will see the hardcore enforcement begin once this evil entity steals another election, it’s going to get ugly, real fast. A revolution, in my opinion will be required to save your arses that you are unwilling to do now before it’s too late! We are at the edge of the abyss to serfdom and squaolor, unfortunately, most sheeple do not want to face this reality – you will, believe me! WAKE UP. WISE UP,ISE UP or kneel to these depoitic entities and hope you keep your head after doing so because I got news for you: because of the Muslim-Marxist in the “Outhouse “, conspiring with his Muslim Brotherhood, his first allegiance, Islam and Sariah Law have made their way ashore to this dead Republic! Whether you want to believe me or not, history will be my truthteller, bet on it! Baa-baa, we want Obaa-baa-ma!
