So, this is all about confirming if someone is still eligible to vote.

If you voted in the 2010 mid-terms, or any election since, they'll assume that you’re still in the district and will mail you a ballot.  No problem there.

If, however, you didn't vote in 2010 they'll send you a post card asking if you're still in the district and would like to vote.  If you're no longer in the district or simply don't want to vote, then you won't get a ballot.  Fair enough.  But if you DO return the verification, they WILL send you a ballot, thus enabling you to vote.

I fail to see the problem here.

This is just another pathetic of an accuse politician using anything he can to alter peoples rights of voting. Tragically, this is happening all over the country.Why now? Two words; President Obama. America had better wake up! Instead of doing something positive for his state, he's trying to divide it. Who in there right mind would deny military members their right to vote! This a$$hole!!!
