Area lawmakers wants to make it easier for military to vote

Delays in absentee ballots being returned by certain voters is being addressed this legislative session.  State Senator Rob Kane, whose district includes Bethlehem and Roxbury, favors a measure to allow military personnel stationed elsewhere to access online voting over a secure website.


Kane says billions of dollars of commerce electronically, so why not give military personnel the same option.  He says they are the ones, after all, protecting the right to vote.


Kane says voting online or having the data transmitted via fax could violate privacy, so this proposal would give military voters the option to waive that constitutional right to ensure that their vote is counted.
