Yesterday, I received several e-mails regarding voting absentee. Our office ensured access to envelopes and instructions to servicemembers on how to print online absentee ballots. The on-base post office has placed notices on all mailboxes that free tracking on absentee ballots is available at the counter. The efforts to ensure that all who are eligible to vote, do vote, are significant. Given the history of our country and the struggle to secure voting rights for all, voting is more than a privilege, it is a civic duty.
