WE ARE ON YOUR SIDE
Protect Military Votes is a project of the American Constitutional Rights Union designed to encourage military voting and ensure all votes cast by members of the United States military and their family members are counted—and honored.
The mission of Protect Military Votes, a project of American Constitutional Rights Union, is to protect the votes of those protecting us.
There have been numerous cases of military ballots mishandled by local election officials, and we believe these votes should be honored with the highest level of efficiency and integrity.
The goal of Protect Military Votes is to:
Increase voting participation rates of military members and their families by educating them about voting rights, processes and deadlines.
Provide a channel for military members to report concerns or problems in the handling of their ballots
Identify any local or state election officials not adhering to military ballot regulations
Take action in cases of military ballot tampering or mishandling
One in six U.S. military voters didn’t vote in 2018 because their absentee ballot arrived late or not at all, according to the Federal Voting Assistance Program.
As former members of the U.S. military who have proudly served our nation, we express our support for Constitutional freedom and liberty. We also pledge to continue to fight to protect the integrity of our most cherished civil right — free and fair elections.

WHY WE FIGHT
When a citizen leaves leaves home and family to risk all fighting for our freedoms, they shouldn’t have to worry about whether their vote will be counted. The shocking reality is that our service members abroad face obstacles that hinder their basic right to vote. From difficulty getting absentee ballots, to processes that bring into question whether their vote will even be counted, our military personnel struggle to do what we at home take for granted.
“Nowhere is the right to vote more sacred than when it resides in the hands of America’s warfighters. It is the responsibility of all citizens and government officials to ensure every military ballot is sent and received and each military vote properly counted. As the men and women of the U.S. military protect us here and abroad, we must protect their voices in the political process.”
Hon. Kenneth Blackwell, Former Secretary of State (Ohio), ACRU Action Board of Directors
“I have fought to defend our great Republic on the battlefield alongside great patriots. Now it is time for us to defend the fundamental rights of all soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines to cast their votes for those who would lead our nation. We must ensure that local election officials give every member of the military the opportunity to vote in a timely manner, in accordance with federal laws. We must protect military votes.”
LTC Allen B. West (US Army, Retired), Member, 112th US Congress
“I recognize that getting the ballots out on time requires a special effort by the Local Election Official (LEO). I submit that this is a small accommodation to make to facilitate the enfranchisement of the brave young men and women who are away from home and prepared to lay down their lives in defense of our country. Were it not for the sacrifices of military personnel, from the American Revolution to the Global War on Terrorism, none of us would have the opportunity to vote in free elections.”
Samuel F. Wright, Captain, JAGC, USN (Ret.)
Military Voting Issues in the News
Von Spakovsky: The Latest Election Data Show—Once Again—That “Voter Suppression” Claim Is Just Propaganda
Numerous studies and turnout data from states that have improved the security of their election process through commonsense reforms have shown that making integrity a primary goal of the laws and regulations governing the election process does not “suppress” votes. In fact, it seems to increase voter confidence in elections, which in turn can help to increase turnout. As the U.S. Supreme Court said in 2008 when it found Indiana’s voter ID law to be constitutional and not to be a burden on voters, maintaining “public confidence in the integrity of the electoral process has independent significance, because it encourages citizen participation in the democratic process.”
Georgia Legislature Must Enforce Ban on Big Tech’s Attempted Takeover of Elections
Last night Georgia’s Senate Ethics Committee agreed to S.B. 222, anti-corruption legislation which would help enforce the state’s existing ban on the private financing of local election offices by ideological groups, corporations, Big Tech companies, and possible foreign interlopers. The bill, which was prompted after the scheme resurfaced this year in DeKalb County, now goes to the Rules Committee for further consideration.
Missouri County Joins Left-Wing Dark-Money Election Organization
Missouri’s Boone County has joined a liberal dark money-linked election organization one watchdog says is aimed at advancing “left-wing voting policies.”
Leftist Groups Tapping $1 Billion to Vastly Expand the Private Financing of Public Elections
Democrats and their progressive allies are vastly expanding their unprecedented efforts, begun in 2020, to use private money to influence and run public elections.
Someone Stole Mom’s Vote
ACRU CEO Lori Roman recently wrote this article for AMAC Magazine. Read on for details on how the votes of our most vulnerable citizens are being hijacked without their knowledge or consent.
Ken Blackwell: What is Senate Bill 71 and what impact would it have on Ohio elections?
Ohio used to be one of the worst states at maintaining its voter rolls. In fact, three Ohio counties even had more people registered to vote than the total voting age population living in these counties. The U.S. Supreme Court even found voter ID to be constitutional because of bad voter rolls like seen in Ohio. This all changed when then Ohio Secretary of State John Husted, now our lieutenant governor, came into office.
