“Commentary: Protect votes of servicemen”

Jocelyn Benson in the Detroit News: “When Michigan’s sons and daughters, husbands and wives put aside their safety to protect ours and serve in the military, it’s our responsibility to ensure that they can exercise their right to vote. Dealing with a deployment is stressful and nerve-wracking for any military family. I know — I am an army wife, and my husband is currently serving in Afghanistan. As we juggle all of the responsibilities of military life, the last thing our service members and their families need is an added struggle of trying to get their ballots in time to vote.”
