The Question Club
This is a weird question, and I hope I don't seem as ignorant as I actually am in asking it. But I figure whatever I ask is general ... like that. Anyways.|
I heard on the radio the other morning that people in the military, be it army, air force, navy, whatever, are not allowed to vote. A woman called in and said that her friend in the army was told he could vote but it wouldn't count, so there's no point. Is there any truth in that? Do they really not let our forces vote? Can't that be seriously unconstitutional? The possibility leaves me feeling uneasy. I mean, it's not even as if you could say that all military people would vote one way or another. They probably have just as many differences as those not in the military. Maybe. I don't know. Either way, though, it just seems completely wrong. How can their vote just... not count? That can't be accurate.
