“The Department of Defense has an obligation under federal law to assist those voting on military installations overseas,” Moran said. “No effort should be spared to make certain the men and women serving our country in uniform — and the families by their side — can exercise their right to choose the leaders responsible for sending them into harm’s way in defense of our democracy."

According to Moran, the Military Voter Protection Project (MVPP) found a 92 percent drop in absentee-ballot requests by service members in Virginia, as well as a more than 50 percent decrease in other swing states including Florida, North Carolina, Ohio and Nevada.
