Colorado seeks waiver from military voting protections

Add Colorado to the list of states seeking to shirk their obligation to protect the rights of military voters.  Today Colorado filed for a waiver from the protections of the MOVE Act which requires ballots to be sent overseas at least 45 days in advance.  And what of all those serving our nation overseas from Colorado?  Too bad:  Secretary of State "Spokesman Rich Coolidge said the ballots will still be mailed, but some soldiers in remote battlefields might not have enough time to mail them back, even though the state will give them an extra seven days after the election."

Thankfully the Pentagon can reject the waiver.  DOJ should be immediately opening an investigation into Colorado's admitted inability to comply with the MOVE Act.   Families of those serving in the armed forces can ask the Colorado Secretary of State to withdraw the waiver application and to comply with the MOVE Act at:

Secretary of State Bernie Beuscher
Suite 200
303-894-2200 ext. 6307
303-869-4861 (FAX)
elections@sos.state.co.us

We will shortly post the email and contact information for other government officials who can prevent Colorado and other states from disenfranchising military voters.
