Military Voting and DOJ

Latest at PJ Tatler:  “Sen. John Cornyn hits AG Eric Holder
over military voting bungles”

The Military Voter Protection Project held a forum on military voting today with the Heritage Foundation in Washington D.C.  A great group of speakers appeared including Senator John Cornyn from Texas, Secretaries of State Natalie Tennant (WV) and Beth Chapman (AL), and Admiral Edmund P. Giambastiani.  I appeared on a panel with PJM’s Hans von Spakovsky and Christopher Coates. Heritage is expected to have an archived stream shortly.

Senator Cornyn made it clear he will be a bulldog over the next year to protect military voting rights.  Servicemembers frustrated with the performance of the federal bureaucracy clearly have a friend in the Senator from Texas.  From his speech:

I can tell you that I will keep the pressure on both DOJ and the Pentagon to implement and enforce the MOVE Act. I have already begun my letter-writing campaign to the Attorney General for the 2012 cycle. I have reminded him that the first presidential primary elections will be in mid-February, which means the 45-day deadline is less than 6 months away for some of them. So I have asked him to make sure every state knows its responsibilities under the MOVE Act, and to confirm that DOJ intends to enforce the law – with litigation where necessary.
