The MOVE Act, enacted last October, ensures that servicemen and women serving overseas have ample time to get in their absentee ballots.

Christian Adams — both former litigation attorneys for the DOJ’s Voting Section — could be that thousands of soldiers’ ballots will arrive too late to be counted.
