Why is Obama Trying To Stop Military Personnel From Ohio From Voting Early?


While the president has his Attorney General, Eric Holder, suing the hell out of the states that passed voter ID laws, Obama is also suing to stop the members of the armed forces from voting in Ohio. While the Obama administration is suing to stop Florida from purging 182,000 illegal aliens from voter registration rolls, he and the Democrats are asking the courts to stop the men and women of the military from voting in Ohio.
Since Obama became president, over 30 states have passed some form of voter ID law. In each instance, these states have all faced lawsuits from either the Democrat party, Obama, the ACLU, or some other entity of the left. With the Obama administration now suing Ohio to limit the military vote, we seem to have come full circle from 2002 when Al Gore and the Democrats tried every dirty trick in the book to steal Florida, including Al Gore's refusal to agree that all absentee military votes should be counted.


President Barack Obama, along with many Democrats, likes to say that, while they may disagree with the GOP on many issues related to national security, they absolutely share their admiration and dedication to members of our armed forces. Obama, in particular, enjoys being seen visiting troops and having photos taken with members of our military. So, why is his campaign and the Democrat party suing to restrict their ability to vote in the upcoming election?

On July 17th, the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party filed suit in OH to strike down part of that state's law governing voting by members of the military. Their suit said that part of the law is "arbitrary" with "no discernible rational basis."

Currently, Ohio allows the public to vote early in-person up until the Friday before the election. Members of the military are given three extra days to do so. While the Democrats may see this as "arbitrary" and having "no discernible rational basis," I think it is entirely reasonable given the demands on servicemen and women's time and their obligations to their sworn duty.

The National Defense Committee reports:
[f]or each of the last three years, the Department of Defense's Federal Voting Assistance Program has reported to the President and the Congress that the number one reason for military voter disenfranchisement is inadequate time to successfully vote.
