According to Founder and Executive Director of the Military Voter Protection Project Eric Eversole, bureaucracy combined with a long list of excuses inside the Pentagon has resulted in a record number of absentee military ballots not being requested or fulfilled. This election cycle is similar to what happened in 2008 when a record number of absentee ballots were never sent out to military voters or were sent out after the deadline to vote.
In 2008, for example, less than 20 percent of 2.5 million military voters were able to request and return their absentee ballots. Our report from the 2010 election showed a significant decrease in military voter participation. In that election, only 5 percent of military voters were able to successfully vote by absentee ballot.
