    EXCLUSIVE: DOJ Accused of Stalling on MOVE Act for Voters in Military

    Published July 28, 2010 - EXCLUSIVE: DOJ Accused of Stalling on MOVE Act for Voters in Military

    "The Department of Justice is ignoring a new law aimed at protecting the right of American soldiers to vote, according to two former DOJ attorneys who say states are being encouraged to use waivers to bypass the new federal Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) Act.

    The MOVE Act, enacted last October, ensures that servicemen and women serving overseas have ample time to get in their absentee ballots. The result of the DOJ's alleged inaction in enforcing the act, say Eric Eversole and J. Christian Adams — both former litigation attorneys for the DOJ’s Voting Section — could be that thousands of soldiers' ballots will arrive too late to be counted.

    Sen. John Cornyn,R-Texas – who co-sponsored MOVE – (Election Law Center) wrote a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder on July 26 saying he is concerned that the Department of Justice is allowing states to opt out of the new law.

    Remember this when voting on November 2, 2010. (Make notes of this and other issues and tape them to your refrigerator door!! Take them to the voting booth with you to refresh your memory when you cast your ballot.)
