Update on July 23, 2012
We've received amazing support from patriotic Americans like you, but need even more help to reach our goal of 10,000 signatures!
The good news is that our voices are starting to be heard – just last week the nonpartisan Military Voter Protection Project commended in a news release (http://www.heroesvote.org/fifteen-states-recognized-for-extraordinary-efforts-to-protect-military-voters/) many states' efforts to protect veterans' voting rights. After analyzing each state's legislative efforts to eliminate barriers to military voter participation and to assist military members serving abroad, they named 15 states as All-Stars of this cause. Among the recognized states were Virginia, Texas, and Florida – is your state (http://www.heroesvote.org/all-star-states) ensuring our heroes are protected at home while serving abroad?
With the clock ticking until the November elections, we need to keep putting pressure on states to ensure that our brave servicemen and women have the opportunity to weigh in on selecting our next President. Invite your friends (http://www.causes.com/causes/621456-support-veterans/actions/1665972?open_inviter=true) to sign the petition!
